Immunizations, TB, Flu Shot

Immunizations

Health care and community development workers frequently come into contact with people who are at most risk for serious complications from illness, including young children, the elderly, and people with chronic health conditions. As a student going on placement, you will be required to provide proof to the College and your placement site that you have been immunized.

In order to ensure you have all the health requirements in order before you go to placement, the stamped immunization form for all students must be submitted by the deadline provided on the immunization form. The submission of the immunization form is required only once, during Semester 1, and by the deadline provided on the form.

For any further questions, please contact Health Services.

 Fleming Health Services – Immunization Forms

**All Immunization forms must be stamped by Health Services (Rm A2-113) by the deadline on the form, before submission to Janice Brunetti in the NARs Office (Rm A2-132.4)**

TB One Step (Annual)

Once students have had the two-step TB test done as required on the immunization form, there will be a yearly update required for most programs. Please see the NARs by Program page to determine if your program is included in this requirement. The yearly update is a one-step TB test.

*If during the original two-step TB test, you were required to have a chest x-ray, you are exempt from the TB Annual test for a period of 5 years.*

**Annual TB One Step tests do not have to be conducted by Fleming Health Services, and can be done through your family doctor or local clinic**

Please submit to Janice Brunetti in the NARs Office (Rm A2 -32.4).

Flu Shot

*Required for most Programs, MANDATORY for the Paramedic Program.**

While the flu shot is only mandatory for the Paramedic program, the School of Health and Wellness recommends all students on placement obtain the flu shot.

In the event of a flu outbreak at a placement site, it is at the discretion of the site whether they will allow the student missing the shot to be present during the outbreak or whether the student must stay home until the outbreak is over. If students miss placement hours

To avoid any disruptions to a student’s placement, flu shots are required.

Please submit to Janice Brunetti in the NARs Office (Rm A2-132.4).
