It is important to get vaccinated for tetanus if you have not been vaccinated during the past 10 years.
Louisiana is currently experiencing an ongoing outbreak of Hepatitis A, therefore Hepatitis A vaccination is recommended for those at high risk and also anyone interested in reducing their risk of infection from Hepatitis A.
Hepatitis B vaccine is also recommended for anyone who performs direct patient care, routinely comes into contact with blood or other bodily fluids or those interested in reducing their risk from infection.
