Hello,

Since I am trying for observership and one of the requirement is that of complete vaccination for PPD and MMR.
I was wondering that who will issue certificate regarding these vaccination. which authority in district is empowered to issue these certificate which is valid.

Can a medical college where I am working is empowered to do so

pls advice..

Get antibody titer

If you don't have a vaccine record since you were a child then it's recommended that you do antibody titer and get the results to prove immunity.

For PPD, it has to be done, or in some states Quantaferone test may also suffice.

In addition to MMR, they usually request Hep B status.

If your medical college can do these things for you then it's definitely OK.
