Vaccines Delayed Due to Shortage
Sharp Rees-Stealy has informed TSRI that there is a nation-wide
shortage of various vaccines and medical testing supplies
due to the recent needs of the military. Therefore, they will
not have any vaccines (Hepatitis B, Hepatitis A, tetanus,
etc.) or TB testing available at the onsite clinics or at
Sharp Rees-Stealy Medical Center Occupational Medicine Program
for about six weeks. Environmental Health & Safety will let
you know when the vaccines and TB testing will be available.
Serum draws and titers are available as usual. Health care
professionals at Sharp note that this slight delay in scheduling
of the vaccine series will not be a problem for those being
vaccinated. Please call the Biosafety Office at x4-8240 with
