Recommendations for HCW

March 14, 2008 memo from DPH and WCIP:

Acceptable evidence of rubella immunity is documented vaccination OR a positive titer


Recommendations for HCW

“Negative measles, mumps, rubella, or varicella titers in immunized persons cannot be interpreted as non-immune status, therefore testing of HCW for immunity after documented receipt of these vaccines is not recommended.”


Safe Injection Practices
