What is Immunization Tracking? Why is it important?

We’ve learned from COVID-19 the value of having a student immunization tracking program in place that can endure rapidly evolving conditions, especially in an industry like healthcare.

Student Immunization Tracking at Nursing & Allied Health Schools

Unvaccinated healthcare personnel have a higher risk of transmitting vaccine-preventable diseases to patients and fellow staff members. That’s why the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) recommends that healthcare personnel, including allied health students, receive measles, mumps, rubella, hepatitis B, varicella, influenza, and pertussis vaccines.

Immunization Tracking and Why It Is Important

Checking for criminal records on potential employees and students entering medical facilities is a definite must have for patient safety. What about their immunization records? Immunization tracking plays a very key role in ensuring that employees and clinical students are protected from contracting illnesses from the patients they care for and observe. Many healthcare workers are at risk for exposure to and possible transmission of vaccine-preventable diseases.
