Before You Sign the Hepatitis B Declination
This course will help you understand the issues surrounding Hepatitis B infection in the research environment. Information presented is derived from CDC and NIOSH sources. Hepatitis B is one of the most frequently acquired Laboratory Acquired Infections and there is good evidence that it can be effectively prevented. This course addresses many misconceptions about Hepatitis B disease and immunization. Anyone who thinks it is better to sign a Hepatitis B declination form than to be immunized should definitely take the couple minutes it takes to complete this course and educate themselves with the facts.
Course Required for those who will be working with bloodborne pathogens (human source materials, HIV, hepatitis B virus, hepatitis C virus, or other potentially infectious materials) AND want to decline the hepatitis B vaccine.
