As part of a pre-employment medical in Ireland you will be required to have full vaccination screening. This includes immunity to the following diseases: Hepatatis B, measles, mumps and rubella immunity, varicella immunity and tuberculosis status.
What can you do to ensure no delay with commencing employement in Ireland?
ALL efforts should be made to obtain records of immunity to the diseases named above. If time allows these vaccinations should be arranged prior to coming to Ireland and results obtained. You can then bring a record of these reults with you to the pre-employment medical. If these are not available on arrival they will need to be organised in a formal way through an Occupational Health Provider.
Be advised that if you do not have a Heapatitis B record with details of original immunity (taken after vaccination) it will be arranged at the practice in Sligo. The cost for this is: €235. However, the real issue is that to attain full immunity the process will take 8 months and you will not be permitted to work as a Healthcare Assistant or nurse during that time. Therefore again - every effort should be made on your part before coming to Ireland to A) Have a record of immunity or B) Arrange to have vaccinations prior to coming to Ireland and results obtained
