POPA and immunization record

Posted by Jose Morales @jmorales182, Feb 15 11:34am

Hi there.

I was wondering if someone had his/her Post Offer Placement Assessment without presenting an immunization record.

Due to the COVID situation and because I am moving from another country, I cannot get a copy of my record.

Thanks a lot for your time.

I am in Florida and they were able to pull it from FLShots because I grew up here. I would call and ask.

I suggest reaching out the your states dept of health (it whatever state you received your vaccines) and they can usually email you your record. That's what I did.

Hi Delmi, thanks for your answer.

Given that I am moving from another country, I need to call Mayo Clinic to sort out it.

Thanks

I also moved from a foreign country and most of my records were not readable, so they did blood test to check my titers. For the ones needed, they vaccinated me. That's not a problem.

They will just vaccinate as long as it is not showing anywhere that you were vaccinated. I couldn't find my Hep B records and ended up getting another one.

Like a few others have said, I too couldn't find some records from when I was really young. They just ordered some extra tests and based on those results will have you get vaccinated if necessary.
Good Luck and congratulations on the new job!

Hi cated,

I think that I will receive some vaccinations in the next few months.

Thanks for your answer.

occupational health would just have to schedule you for a titer test & go based off that, congratulations!

Hi Claudia.

I think it won't be really bad like I thought at the beginning.

Thanks

I'm in Florida, and I wasn't able to bring any immunization records with me to my POPA, so they drew blood and ran titer tests, and then called me to let me know my results and whether or not I would need to come in for a vaccine. If you do have to get vaccinated again for some reason, they will not do it before your start date if it's a live virus (MMR), so you will have to go in on your first day and get that vaccination.
