Employee Health Requirements – Communicable Disease Prevention
Early Head Start (EHS) staff (and consultants with frequent EHS involvement) are required to confirm:
Varicella vaccination (or documentation of clinical illness)
Influenza vaccine (Including H1N1)
Annual Tuberculosis Screening Questionnaire
Annual Employee Health Appraisal
If an EHS employee is unwilling to provide proof of vaccinations, or to get recommended vaccinations, they will be required to meet with the health and Nutrition Consultant about communicable disease risks to infants and pregnant women, and agree to a plan that would limit the employees’ exposure to high-risk infants and pregnant women during communicable disease outbreaks.
