“When a high school graduate heads off to college for the first time, the preparation checklist is long! The last thing a parent needs to worry about is digging through old records for immunization paperwork."
Alpharetta, GA (PRWEB) June 26, 2013
Many colleges and other higher education schools require proof of immunity or documentation of vaccinations before students may attend classes, especially if a student is enrolled in a healthcare program. It is easy to lose vaccination records due to the long lapse of time between the pediatric years and early adulthood. A lab test known as a "titer" will show if a person is immune to certain highly contagious diseases such as measles, mumps and rubella (MMR titers) and chickenpox (varicella titer). A blood draw is used to perform the titer test, and test results will reflect immunity to specific diseases. Test results generally take 24 to 48 hours after specimens are collected, and will provide the evidence a school needs for admittance.
“When a high school graduate heads off to college for the first time, the preparation checklist is long. The last thing a parent needs to worry about is digging through old records for immunization paperwork,” states Clarissa Bradstock, COO for ANY LAB TEST NOW. “We make the process as stress-free and quick as possible, as well as affordable given all the other costs associated with starting college.”
Healthcare students may be required to show proof of immunity for additional diseases including hepatitis B and C, TB and flu shots. Some schools, especially those whose healthcare student interns may have access to restricted medications, have added drug screens to prevent addiction and support the health, safety and wellness of patients where students may be directly responsible.
