OK, sorry if this has been covered recently...
Earlier today I interviewed for a dental assistant position and they asked me if I was vaxed for HepB. I wasn't sure, so I said I probably was but could find out; they said if I wasn't and I was hired, that they would pay for it. Well, I am not at all interested in getting three doses of this vaccine, but I really, really want this job.
So my questions are: are there any health professionals here that have rejected the HepB vaccine? does the Colorado conscientious objection provision apply to my situation? if I decline the vaccine, will they think I'm a pain in the a$$? (ok, so maybe you can't answer that
I just don't think if I'm careful about coming into contact with bodily fluids that this would really be something to vaccinate against, and that the chances of adverse reaction are greater.
Any advice? thoughts? suggestions?
I really hope I get this job...
