All employees that work with either animal or human studies at the North Carolina Research Campus (NCRC) are required to obtain state-required immunization(s) dependent upon job responsibilities/laboratory exposure. To reduce potential risk, employers are required to establish a medical surveillance program which documents immunity for some diseases and providing safety training on methods to prevent exposure and disease. These programs are to be provided at no cost to the employee in accordance with OSHA.
Each employee will communicate with the respective university main campus Occupational Health Clinic to obtain the medical services component/determination of required immunizations (medical surveillance program). Each university main campus EHS Department is responsible for general safety training (online and/or in-person) for vaccines/immunizations.
