Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Health Sciences Immunization Program (HSIP)
Billing for injuries sustained during training are not always reimbursed by the health fee. WHY? Do I have to receive my health care at Hall Health??
How can I obtain a copy of my HSIP record? Will you send it to my clinical site or new employer? Can I obtain a copy through E-care at Hall Health or another UW Medicine Clinic?
How secure are my records? Are they kept confidential?
I had a 3-dose Hepatitis B series many years ago. I just had the titer and it came back negative (nonreactive, or not immune). What should I do now, repeat the series or get one dose? Why does this happen?
I just started the Hepatitis B series and it will take about 6 months for me to finish it so I can’t meet the deadline. I won’t be able to finish all the pre-entry immunization requirements by the time I’m supposed to send the paperwork in. What should I do?
I thought I had the chicken pox in the past, but my titer didn’t come up positive (it was negative, or it may have been equivocal). Why would this happen? Should I just get one dose of vaccine since I know I already had the disease, or would I need 2 doses of vaccine given at least one month apart since the titer isn’t positive? Do I need to have the blood test again after the vaccine?
On page 3 of the HSIP form, it says “IGRA on or after 7/1/2014 for school year compliance”. Does that mean we should give the date of our last IGRA and submit the form as soon as possible; then have another one after 7/1/2014 and submit documentation for it later? Or, does it mean we should wait until after 7/1/2014 to do one, and then submit the form?
What is the waiver process? I don’t want to (or can’t) receive one of the required vaccines.
Why do I need another skin test (PPD) now, if I have never needed it before? No one receives a PPD in the country I came from because we receive the BCG vaccine. I prefer to have a chest x-ray because the PPD is not going to be accurate for me.
Why doesn’t the HSIP provide clinical services for the vaccine requirements for admission to a Health Science School or Program?
