Immunizations for Medical Interpreters
Updated On: Oct 11, 2014

Immunization Requirements

for Interpreters rendering services

at HCA’s Medicaid appointments

As of September 22nd, 2014:   Interpreters will not be able to accept HCA (medical) appointments until immunization and TB status records have been provided. Interpreters who still have not provided the proper immunization documentation will have any HCA (medical) appointments scheduled for after September 22nd removed from their schedules by CTS. 

Which immunizations/tests will the state require of interpreters?

Rubella, rubeola, mumps (or the combination vaccine commonly referred to as MMR)
OR proof of immunity (commonly obtained through a blood test)
Varicella (chicken pox) vaccine OR proof of immunity
Diphtheria, Pertussis (commonly given in a combination vaccine called TDap)
AND
Annual updates include:
Flu vaccine – You must receive the flu vaccine and provide proof of such before November 30th of each year, unless the Department of Health declares a flu pandemic, in which case the start of the flu season could be earlier.  You do NOT need to provide proof of flu vaccine this year until November!
AND
Tuberculosis (TB) screening
You may provide proof via one of three methods:  a skin test (commonly called a PPD), QuantiFERON, or the T-spot blood test.  There are specific requirements about TB testing and results. 

You will find out a lot more about these requirements and its latest updates under our "Members Only" tab.
