Hepatitis B Vaccine Declination Form
“ I understand that due to my occupational exposure to blood or other possible infective stuffs I may be at hazard of geting hepatitis B virus ( HBV ) infection. I have been given the chance to be vaccinated with hepatitis B vaccinum, at no charge to myself. However, I decline hepatitis B inoculation at this clip. I understand that by worsening this vaccinum. I continue to be at hazard of geting hepatitis B, a serious disease. If in the hereafter I continue to hold occupational exposure to blood or other potentially infective stuffs and I want to be vaccinated with hepatitis B vaccinum, I can have the inoculation series at no charge to me. ” ( OSHA Standards for the General Industry, 2000, p. 594 )
