Onsite Flu Vaccination Program
You must be well in order to face each and every busy work week, and the flu vaccine can help ensure you don’t get sick. There are billions of dollars lost every year that total around *$30 billion in medical expenses and lost work. This is a major problem that will slow down businesses, and stopping work is not an option for many people.

Titer Testing For Proof Of Immunization
The titer that you have done will help you understand how safe you are from the diseases that are just waiting to have a negative impact on your life. The titer test can prove to be useful whether you need your immunization record revealed or have someone who needs immunized and you’re not sure what they have already had.
Types of Titers
MMR Titer (Measles, Mumps, Rubella):
MMR Titer Test is used to check immunity for Measles, Mumps, and Rubella. You may check for all three, and the presence of antibodies will ensure that you are protected.
Varicella Titer Test (Chickenpox Test):
The varicella-zoster virus will cause chicken pox, and you may need a number of different tests to ensure that you have the lifelong immunity necessary when you have been infected in the past.
The Varicella Zoster Virus Antibodies IgG Test will help determine if there are enough antibodies in your blood from the vaccination you should have had.
The Varicella Zoster Virus Antibodies IgM Test Will check for a current infection.
Tdap Titer Test:
A panel that checks your immunity to Tetanus, Diphtheria, and Pertussis. These are the components of the Tdap and DTaP vaccines.
The Tetanus & Diphtheria Titer is used to see if you have protective antibodies against tetanus and diphtheria. The antibodies will appear in different levels in different people. The Pertussis Titer scans your blood for IgG antibodies to Bordetella pertussis.
Hepatitis A Titer:
Hepatitis A IgM Antibody Test will check for any recent infections.
Hepatitis A Total Antibody Test will check for antibody levels in your blood when you have been vaccinated.
Hepatitis A is contagious, and it will cause liver damage if not stopped as soon as possible.
Hepatitis B Titer:
Hepatitis B Surface Antigen (HBsAg) will be used to check for any recent infections that may have occurred.
Hepatitis B Surface Antibody (Anti-HBs) will help you learn how to manage the vaccinations you have given.
Hepatitis B virus is spread through the blood, and it can cause severe liver damage if not treated properly. The vaccine that is given for hepatitis can be completed and tested through our services, and we will help you ensure that all the tests have been completed properly.
Rabies Antibody Titer test (Rapid Fluorescent Focus Inhibition Test (RFFIT):
Rabies Titer will be used to determine if someone has the proper level of immunity to the disease. This is an important test that must be completed as soon as possible on all employees in a veterinary facility.
We know that the antibody levels are highest just a few weeks after a vaccine, and we will determine how long it has been since the vaccine was given for verification. Our lab report will also show how the titer was performed.
The cut-off titer is 6-12 ml, and there are many people who will not meet the threshold for immunization because their bodies have not taken to the vaccine properly. Subjects often find that they either need to have the vaccine readministered or that they were never vaccinated in the first place. This is an important step that you may use to determine who is ready to work in your facility.
Rabies is a terrible disease that progresses through the body in a manner that will break down the central nervous system. Someone who is concerned about testing for rabies or giving vaccines must ensure that they have had our titer done properly.
Employees who work in the veterinary profession are at high risk for rabies and a number of other disorders, and we will provide a testing and titer service that will ensure everyone has been protected before going to work.
