Vaccinations for Healthcare Providers
As a healthcare provider you are continually putting yourself on the frontline to help others. In order to ensure the health of yourself and your patients it’s important you and your staff have the right vaccinations. Passport Health makes it easy to protect healthcare professionals with onsite or in-clinic vaccinations services. Our expert staff is trained to educate on each recommended vaccine and is here to help you schedule what services are right for you and your team.
Which Vaccines Do Healthcare Providers Need?
Healthcare workers are on the frontlines of keeping their communities safe and healthy throughout the year. Vaccinations play a key role in keeping these workers safe and their patients as well: hepatitis A, hepatitis B, measles, mumps and rubella (MMR), Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis), chickenpox, pneumonia and influenza.
See the bullets below to learn more about some of these key immunizations:
- Chickenpox –

Given to those unvaccinated that did not have chickenpox. Healthcare workers are at an increased risk of infection, depending on specialty.
- Hepatitis A –

Liver infection commonly spread through needles, medical equipment or direct contact with body fluids. Vaccination is the best form of protection.

- Measles Mumps Rubella (MMR) –
Various Vectors –
Vaccination recommended for anyone without evidence of immunity and/or born after 1957. Healthcare workers are at an increased risk of infection, depending on specialty.

Passport Health – Vaccines for Healthcare Providers
“I want to thank the professionals at Passport Health. Navigating the journey that is employee wellness is been extremely challenging, especially with minimal input from some key players. Passport Health helped us put together an action plan- from incentives to screenings to vaccinations. They did a great job! Professional, timely, and compassionate, I would recommend them to anyone.”
“We didn’t expect the knowledge and guidance we received when we contacted Passport Health about a wellness program. This is a great business that is well run by a friendly and knowledgable staff. I would highly reocmmend the service. They will help you plan what you need, won’t oversell you and respect a “no thank you” as happily as “I’ll take another one of those”. Their medical staff helped our employees understand the whole process and the wellness team helped us understand the ROI and benifits our employees would be receiving. Thank you so much!”
“Our company recently switched providers for our DAP physicals and Passport is the third provider I’ve experienced. Passport is far and away the best. It’s simply on a higher tier of professionalism than any of the others. The administrative assistant was courteous, efficient, capable and an excellent communicator. The nurse practitioner was extremely professional while being perfectly congenial and took care to: explain all aspects of the process, review results in real time, perform a thorough examination and managed to do it all quite efficiently. The office and facilities are well kept, clean and comfortable. I wish every visit to a health care or service provider could be as pleasant an experience. Also, the scheduling and confirmation process was very efficient and professional. A+”
“The staff is very calming and helpful. They took what we thought would be very difficult (planning a wellness program) and made it easy. Their tools and services were able to bring our program to the next level. We don’t plan on using anyone else for any health services we may need.”
“Top to bottom, a professional organization. The staff made it super easy to schedule our screenings and had all paperwork on-hand and ready to go. The screenings were conducted in polite and professional manner. Our staff was at ease the entire time and felt perfectly comfortable asking any questions.”
