Jan 14, 2019
Will you participate in practical training at health care and soial services during your studies? Check out instructions concerning infectious diseases and vaccinations before your training. Section 48 of the revised Infectious Diseases Act governs the immunity of students participating in practical training, the aim being to protect patients. The purpose of the Act is to ensure that all staff members and students working at health care and social services units get vaccinated against influenza every year and are protected against measles and varicella, through either vaccination or a personal history of the disease. Those caring for children aged under 1 year must also be vaccinated against pertussis. This will improve the safety of both patients and the students.
