Hepatitis B Disease & Vaccine Dangers - Page 4

Employee refusal rights regarding vaccines under OSHA

From the the OSHA (Occupational Health & Safety Administration> site - PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD - do what you can to get this information out in the workplace! OSHA info

I have excerpted from this....

They have to provide you a declination form - 29 CFR 1910.1030, Appendix A,

"All OSHA employees whose job duties involve occupational exposure, (see Section I of this Plan) are to be offered the hepatitis B vaccination. The vaccine will be made available after the training required in 29 CFR 1910.1030 has been accomplished, and within 10 days of initial assignment of the employee to duties with occupational exposure. It is desirable that all employees with duties such as those described in Section I be immunized against hepatitis B. However, OSHA realizes that some personnel, even after training, may decline to receive the hepatitis B vaccine. In such case, the declining OSHA employee is to sign the declination statement which is Appendix A of 29 CFR 1910.1030 (see also Appendix B of this Plan). The employee can receive the vaccine after signing the declination statement if a change of mind occurs and if duties still involve those with occupational exposure."

Sample declination form

If you do not wish to have the vaccine at this time, please sign the refusal form.



I understand that due to my occupational exposure to blood or other potentially infectious materials I may be at risk of acquiring hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection. I have been given the opportunity to be vaccinated with hepatitis B vaccine, at no charge to myself. However, I decline hepatitis B vaccination at this time. I understand that by declining this vaccine I continue to be at risk of acquiring hepatitis B, a serious disease. If in the future I continue to have occupational exposure to blood or other potentially infectious materials and I want to be vaccinated with hepatitis B vaccine, I can receive the vaccination series at no charge to me.
