Immunizations for Year-Round Program

owlImmunizations (or proof of immunizations) are required to volunteer at Vanderbilt. As part of our year-round program, if you don't have the required immunizations, the Volunteer Services Department will provide these at no expense to you through the Vanderbilt Occupational Health Clinic (OHC).

The following immunizations are required:

  • Two-Step Tuberculosis; two TB skin tests, two weeks apart (if you have documentation of one within the past year and one within the last 3 months the requirement has been met);
  • MMR (measles, mumps & rubella); two MMR vaccines one month apart (if you have documentation of two MMR vaccines since 12 months of age the requirement has been met); if born prior to 1/1/ 1957, the rubella titer (and not the MMR) is required;
  • Varicella Titer, to assess immunity to Chicken Pox, or documentation of two (2) Varivax vaccines at least one (1) month apart;
  • Mandatory Annual Influenza Vaccine; and,
  • Hepatitis B Series is recommended for select volunteer opportunities
  • TDAP (whooping cough booster) is required for select volunteer opportunities

    IF, DURING THE IMMUNIZATION PROCESS, IT IS DETERMINED OTHER TESTS ARE NEEDED (E.G., CHEST X-RAY, VARIVAX VACCINE, ETC.) IT/THESE WILL BE AT YOUR EXPENSE.
