Immunization Requirements

 

Documentation of all required immunizations must be submitted with the Medical Billing and Coding Program application form to be considered for acceptance into the program.    If immunizations expire, or new requirements are added while the student is in the program, the students must obtain the necessary immunizations and provide documentation at his or her own expense.

  • Acceptable documentation of proof of immunization may include:
  • A signed letter from your physician or physician's office
  • A signed immunization record
  • A copy of laboratory results demonstrating proof of immunity
  • Tuberculosis (TB) PPD Testing:  Required once a year.  If the student does not have a documented negative skin test result within the preceding 12 months, a two-step baseline must be used.  Students with a positive PPD must have a chest x-ray and provide documentation to the Allied Health Program office that demonstrates no active Tuberculosis.  The student should have a recent PPD if exposed to a patient with active TB.

 

  • Tetanus, Diphtheria, Pertussis (Tdap):  Within the last 8 years Td is not acceptable as they do not have Pertussis in this vaccine.

 

  • Measles, Mumps & Rubella (MMR): Documentation of 2 doses MMR vaccine or record of laboratory serology (titers) results. You cannot be pregnant and must not become pregnant for the next month if receiving MMR shots since these are live vaccines.  You may be breast feeding.  Please check with your physician.


  • Varicella (Chicken Pox): Student with no history of exposure to chickenpox will  be required to provide documentation of inoculation series (2 shots) or physician documentation of disease or record of positive serology (titer) results. You cannot be pregnant and must not become pregnant for the next month if receiving Varicella shots since these are live vaccines.  You may be breast feeding.  Please check with your physician.


  • Hepatitis B (Hep B):  Three injections are required over a six month period.  The second dose must be at least one month after the first dose; the third dose is administered 6 month after the first.  Documentation must be in the student's file, proving the first two injections have been completed prior to acceptance into the program.  The third injection must be received prior to externship, or your acceptance will be nullified.  Hepatitis B injections can be further apart.  For example, if you had one injection five years ago, you would pick up where you left off.   A titer may be done if the student believes they have had Hepatitis B, but cannot find documentation. 

 

  • ​Hepatitis A (Hep A):  Currently not required, but strongly recommended for all health care professionals.  Two injections are required.  The second one must be at least 6 months after the first one.  Yakima is a high risk area for Hep. A.

 

  • Current Year Seasonal Flu immunization: Many of the drug stores currently administer flu shots. Seasonal flu shots are usually administered from late September to May for the current seasonal flu season.​​​​

 

IF IMMUNIZATION STATUS IS NOT CURRENT AND DOCUMENTED IN THE STUDENT'S FILE, THE STUDENT WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO PARTICIPATE IN THE LABORATORY COURSES OR THE CLINICAL COURSES.
