Polio
Polio

  • Vaccination required by Illinois Department of Public Health

  • Pre-1957 Exemption

  • Must provide record of pediatric vaccination with OPV/IPV vaccine series

  • If no records, requires single adult IPV booster

  • No titer for this is done


Tb testing ppd
TB Testing (PPD)

  • Baseline 2-step purified protein derivative (PPD) testing required

    • Two PPD skin tests: 1-3 weeks apart

  • After 2-step, annual single-step required

  • If you have a current PPD (within the past yr), one additional PPD in the same calendar year will suffice

  • Quantiferon Gold TB blood test is an alternative to the 2-step PPD but must be repeated yearly


If you have a history of ppd
If you have a history of + PPD:

  • Record of positive PPD required, including date and measurement

  • Baseline Chest X-Ray dated after the positive result

  • Annual TB Symptom questionnaire must be completed: a self-report assessing for TB signs and symptoms

  • Questionnaire available on the CON website


Titers
Titers

  • Blood tests

  • Test blood for presence of antibodies (immunity) to specific illnesses

  • Positive titer means you are immune

  • Positive titer can result from disease exposure or immunization


Required titers
REQUIRED TITERS

  • MEASLES IgG

  • MUMPS IgG

  • RUBELLA IgG

  • VARICELLA IgG

  • HEPATITIS B surface antibody, QUANT


If you have a negative titer
If you have a negative titer

  • Measles* or mumps* – need 2 MMR boosters, 4-6 weeks apart

  • Rubella – need one MMR booster

  • Varicella* – need 2 varicella boosters, 4-6 weeks apart

  • *If you prefer to have a single booster and then another titer, this is OK too


A word about hepatitis b
A Word About Hepatitis B

  • For YOUR protection

  • Vaccine preventable illness that can lead to liver cancer

  • Vaccine series requires 3 vaccines at 0, 1, and 6 months

  • Titer done 6 weeks after last vaccination

  • If you had the series awhile ago, your titer may be negative, but you may really be immune (immunologic memory) If this happens, email me for guidance

  • It is important to know for certain since this protects YOU
