Question New to the site and Medical Assisting

Hello Everyone,

I'm new to the site and I am a medical assistant student. I hear that you can get hepatitis working in the medical field. How would one avoid getting hepatitis if you are in that working environment?

Do you mean to say that you are not vaccinated????
Well, I must say, I'm shocked. Here in the UK, people who work in the relevant fields will get free hep A, B and C vaccinations. Anybody else can still get them, but will have to pay. Speak to your employer/director of studies and see what he or she recommends.

Re: New to the site and Medical Assisting

Currently I am a student and I am going through the process of getting the series of shots, the school make it mandatory that you get the series and a tb skin test. However, if you get the flu shot, you can still get the flu. So my question is to the board, "How can you prevent getting the virus?"
