Protect Them from Serious Illness
Ensuring your immune system is efficient in protecting you from illness is your first line of defense against contagious diseases such as Hepatitis B, MMR, or chicken pox. Veritas Healthcare provides this as an optional add-on to the customizable wellness programs for your employees.
Hepatitis B, measles, mumps, rubella (MMR), and varicella (chickenpox or VZV) immunity can all be confirmed with this blood titer test. In many cases, a person's ability to work or attend school depends on having proof of immunity to commonly spread illnesses. Hence these tests are frequently necessary.
Determine If Vaccination is Right
Humans are the only known hosts for the MMR viruses, which cause measles, mumps, and rubella. The aerosol route is the primary mode of transmission for everyone. One serotype of each virus has been identified so far. All three of these viruses are included in the MMR (mumps, measles, Rubella) vaccination, albeit in weakened versions. All infected people will most likely become unwell. Due to the fact that there is only one serotype of measles, a single infection by natural means is sufficient to provide permanent immunity. Measles is often transmitted by inhalation as the primary mode of transmission. Maximum contagiousness of the measles virus occurs two to three days prior to the appearance of the characteristic rash. Chickenpox is a sickness brought on by the varicella-zoster virus (VZV).
Although the vast majority of expectant mothers will have had the virus before and be immune to it, others may not have been infected at all. It is possible to screen for VZV antibodies before conception or in early pregnancy since the virus might cause birth abnormalities or sickness in the newborn (depending on when an infection arises during the pregnancy). A vaccination can be administered before pregnancy to a woman who does not have immunity; if she is already pregnant and may have been exposed to the virus, she can get therapy to prevent or lessen the severity of the sickness. Determine whether or not vaccination is necessary by measuring anti-hepatitis B surface antibody (anti-HBs) levels or check whether or not protective immunity has been developed after receiving a vaccine series.
Your doctor may suggest an immune health panel if you need to verify that you are immune to MMR viruses because of a past illness, exposure to an infected person, or vaccination.
This is a standard practice for women who are actively attempting to conceive. A miscarriage or birth abnormalities in the fetus are both possible outcomes if a pregnant woman contracts rubella within the first three months of her pregnancy. In addition, you may need to determine whether or not you have the measles, mumps, or rubella. For the sake of public health, it is essential to detect, monitor, and keep tabs on any possible or proven cases of MMR. In order to determine how likely you are to contract infectious mononucleosis (mono), you may be advised to do a test for the Epstein-Barr virus. Your doctor will confirm the diagnosis and formulate a treatment strategy based on the findings.
