Hepatitis B Vaccination (HBV) protection is required to be provided by Employers for their Employees who are considered to have occupational exposure* to blood and other potentially infectious materials (OPIM).
As defined in the OSHA Bloodborne Pathogens Standard, 29 CFR 1910.1030, the HBV and vaccination administration must be offered at No Cost to the Employee. The HBV must also be available to receive at a reasonable time and place for the Employee.
To assist Employers with providing an HBV to their Employees who have occupational exposure Kinney Drugs has created the Hep-B Employer Vaccination Program. This program will allow Employers the ability to set-up access for these Employees to obtain an HBV with ease at a Local Kinney Drugs of their choice.
*Employees considered to have occupational exposure include but are not limited to: healthcare workers, emergency responders, morticians, first-aid personnel, correctional officers and laundry workers in hospitals and commercial laundries that service healthcare or public safety institutions.
Employers who request to participate in the HBV program will be contacted by a Kinney Drugs Patient Care Center representative to complete the enrollment process.
P.S. We also offer an Employer Flu Vaccination Program and other vaccines in store!
