Fake Immunization Records
Ask your college: Some colleges will allow you to register without proof of the immunization and some won't. If you can't find the actual shot record, they may ask that you have a blood test called a titer to determine if you are immune to either measels or rubella. Ask your college what they require that you have for attendance there. ...Read moreSee 6 more doctor answers
Yes, but...: ...Guess what? Insurance companies can also look at your paper records too. Built into the contracts they sign with doctors, insurance companies can "audit" a physician to look at their clinical notes. This is to prevent overbilling or incorrectly billing.

Do hospitals look at an employee's medical record when hiring them? Are medical records confidential?

Good luck. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Not enough evidence: Use of bpa and human exposure is so very low that it is impossible to determine extent or risk at this point in time. Studies completed are not conclusive enough to demand withdrawal. Nothing to do with lobbyists in my opinion. Studies show micro doses are metabolized and excreted from the body very quickly, limiting potential damage. ...Read more

Depends: Generally employee health records are not readily available except in cases of information on fmla forms and sometimes for particular job requirements.

Yes.: Anything stored in an electronic format is "hackable". No system is 100% secure. That goes the same for other sensitive systems like bank records, federal records, etc. There are different levels of security though. Communicating with your doctor through gmail is not as secure as something that is hippa compliant. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

YES!: The hib vaccine protects babies and infants against a type of bacteria which can cause meningitis and death. When i started my medical training, it was a fairly common, and serious, infection. Due to the success of the vaccine, it is now uncommon.

Ask an attorney: Is it legal to "hold them down and inject them?" probably not. It is probably, however, legal to restrict them from working in a high risk environment when they are potentially transmitting a dangerous infection to immunocompromised people. You may have your philosophical objection to the vaccination program, but make that "choice" for yourself, not for people who are a risk of dying from it. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Hep a vaccine Havrix 1440 for adults is out of stock. They prescribed me 2 Havrix 720 (jr). Epidemiologists say taking 2 junior has no protection?
Hepatitis A vaccine: Havrix comes in adult and pediatric doses. The adult vaccine contains 1440 EL.U. (ELISA Units) of viral antigen, while the pediatric dose contains 720 EL.U.

These are highly effective vaccines, so I don't know what information you've been told-but I think it's fine. ...Read more
