The Vaccine Center offers every vaccine available in the US including all OSHA required vaccinations and has them stocked in our offices at all times. We even have hard to find vaccines like Rabies or Japanese Encephalitis. Depending on the type of workplace you are in, we can help your company discover which vaccines are appropriate for your employees. We keep electronic medical records so your employees will have a permanent immunization record. We usually have same day or next day appointments available for vaccine services.
The Vaccine Center also offers blood titers. Titers are blood tests that check your immune status to vaccinations or diseases you may have received in the past. If you’re titers results are positive, you may have already been exposed to that disease or may have received the vaccine in the past. If however your titer results are negative, you may have to get the vaccinations required for the work place. The Vaccine Center offers titer for Hepatitis A, Hepatitis B, MMR, Varicella and Rabies.
TB Skin Testing
The Vaccine Center offers two types of Tuberculosis testing. The first type is a skin test which is used to determine if a person has developed an immune response to the Tuberculosis bacteria. This can occur if someone has TB, if they were exposed to TB in the past, or if they received the BCG vaccine. We provide both a 1 step and 2 step TB skin test, depending on what is required for the workplace. A 2-step TB skin test is sometimes used to prevent the chance of the first TB skin test being a false-negative reaction. Sometimes, in persons who were infected with TB, the ability to react to tuberculin may decrease over time. Giving a second TB skin test after an initial negative TB skin test may stimulate the immune system to give a more accurate result. The second type is a blood test. The QuantiFERON®-TB Gold test (QFT-G) is a laboratory test that is taken by a blood sample. It is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as a test for detecting tuberculosis infection and latent tuberculosis infection. If you or your employee has a positive TB skin test or Quantiferon Blood test, The Vaccine Center provides Chest X-rays. A Chest-X-ray can detect any check abnormalities, detect lesions in the lung that may suggest TB and rule out the possibility of pulmonary (lung) Tuberculosis in a person who had a positive TB skin test or QFT-G test.
We provide both pre-employment and employment physical exams. We can custom design a program that meets your specific employer needs. We offer physical exams for pre-employment, deployment, executives, Department of Transportation, US Coast Guard, and more.
Employers spend a tremendous amount of money on their employees due to sickness and worker productivity. Poor employee health is expensive. Requiring that your employees have a physical exam done before starting employment and annually can help cut these costs. These physicals make it possible to increase productivity by identifying candidates who would not be able to carry out the physical requirements of a particular job. Identifying these candidates also helps employers reduce their workers' compensation costs.
We provide both employment and pre-employment physical examinations. We can custom design a program that meets any employer's needs as well as pre-employment drug testing, lab work, audiometric testing, vaccines and more. We do employment physicals for a wide array of industries. As part of our employment physical program, we can custom make a program that suits your company's needs. Additionally, some companies offer an annual wellness physical as part of their benefits package. This annual physical can save your company a significant amount of money on your employee health insurance by catching preventable diseases early and getting your employees involved in disease management if needed. We can provide an entire array of health screening in disease management, custom-made to your company's needs. Talk to your insurance provider about how much money you can save by entering a wellness program with us.
Diagnostic / Wellness Screening
Ensuring that your employees are healthy is very important. The Vaccine Center provides Diagnostic and Wellness screening on site our in our office. We can set up on site to perform biometric wellness screenings (generally during a health fair) to provide a healthier staff for your company. When providing these services, you are also offering your employees great education and suggestions for healthier living through a variety of diagnostic and wellness screenings. Your company can create a unique program for your staff based on what testing and results you want to have performed such as Biometric Screening, EKG, Audiometric Testing, Ultrasounds, Eye exams (Titmus), Lift Testing, Stress Test and more!
Workplace Drug & Alcohol Testing Programs
One of the most important decisions a non-DOT regulated business can make, is to implement a comprehensive drug testing and drug-free workplace program and policy for their business. With the proper drug and alcohol testing program in place, as an employer, you are protected from liability situations through the drug testing program. Employee drug testing is legal in all States, but the programs must follow Federal and State laws in order to be compliant. We know the different laws in every state, and will put together a program and policy for your business that conforms to all federal and state laws that apply.
Implementing a Drug-Free Workplace Program
The Vaccine Center is your complete solution to implementing and maintaining drug-free workplace programs for small and large companies anywhere in the United States. All of our drug-free workplace programs have been carefully designed to be in compliance with Federal and State laws and to help reduce an employer's exposure to liability due to a drug or alcohol-related incident.
