Hepatitis B Vaccine Information

After the completing the Bloodborne Pathogen Training module, you must review the information sheet about Hepatitis B and complete the appropriate Hepatitis B Vaccine Waiver/Acceptance Form.

Your Bloodborne Pathogen training will not be complete until this form is submitted.

Vaccine Waiver/Acceptance Form Instructions

If you are affiliated with UT and working with bloodborne pathogens, UT offers the Hepatitis B vaccine to you at no charge.

  • If you have never received the vaccine and wish to get it, please complete the Option A under the vaccine waiver/acceptance form.
  • If you have previously received the vaccine and/or do not wish to get it, please complete the Option B on the form. If you decline the vaccine, you can still receive it anytime in the future.
  • If you have started the series, but only had 1 or 2 shots, you do not have complete protection. You do not have to restart the vaccine series, but you should finish the series for full protection.
