Prevent Illness Through Vaccinations
Job-Required & Individual Vaccinations Available
Whether to stay healthy or for a work-related requirement, vaccinations are a safe and effective way to prevent potential illness. Our clinics offer several vaccinations for adults and kids.
Ages 4+. Offered September - March. Find more information on our Flu Shots & Treatment service page.
Also called lockjaw, tetanus is a serious bacterial infection that can cause muscle spasms and even death. The tetanus vaccine is typically given after a burn, laceration, or puncture wound, especially if tetanus vaccination history is not known. A tetanus booster is recommended every 10 years for adults.
Hepatitis B (series of 3 shots)
Hepatitis B is a serious, chronic liver disease caused by the Hepatitis B virus (HBV). It is transmitted through blood, semen, or other body fluids from an infected person. Vaccination for Hepatitis B is given in a three-shot series:
- Day 1
- Day 30
- 6 months from day 1
Hepatitis B Titer
For individuals who are already immunized that want to know their status, we check Hep B surface antibody test.
- 1-2 months after completion of Hepatitis B series.
- Hepatitis B Titer can also be done to prove immunity in place of vaccine, such as for a work-related requirement.
Hepatitis A is a virus that causes liver disease. The virus is transmitted through the fecal matter (poop) and body fluids of an infected person.

- The TB test must be read within 48 to 72 hours after the injection.
