HBV Vaccination

Hepatitis B Vaccination

Hepatitis B Vaccinations are scheduled through the Medical Monitoring Program managed by EH&S.

Employees who required to participate in the program, will be offered and encouraged to have Hepatitis B Vaccinations free of charge within 10 days of employment.

Employees who decline Hepatitis B vaccinations, leaving themselves at risk for infection, must sign a "Hepatitis B Vaccine Declination" form, if they choose not to be vaccinated annually (when re-offered to the individual). This form is co-signed by the supervisor.

Contact EH&S at 278-6119 for further information.

Post-Exposure Evaluation & Follow-up

Employees who have had an exposure incident must receive a follow-up evaluation from the Sac State's emergency employee medical provider (currently Kaiser Permanente during normal office hours and any emergency clinic during no-office hours or weekends).

  • This service is provided at no cost to the employee.
  • Evaluations must be completed within 4 hours of the incident if anti-HIV therapy is to be fully effective.
  • The medical provider will determine what follow-up care is necessary. This may include, but is not limited to, HBV, HCV, or HIV testing, HBV vaccinations, counseling, or drug therapy (Anti viral drugs).
  • Whenever possible a blood sample from the source should be brought to the emergency care facility for testing.
  • The incident must be documented on an "Accident Report"
