  2. Mandatory vaccinations:
    • Measles (Rubeola)
    • Mumps
    • Rubella (German Measles)
    • Diphtheria
    • Tetanus (within 10 years)
    • Polio
    • Hepatitis B
    • Varicella
    • Recommended: Seasonal Flu Vaccination or Declination (when vaccination unavailable or declined)

Acceptable proof of immunization include medical records or positive serology results for antibodies of  above list.

UPDATE***
Our new contract with Kaiser wants every ridealong to have proof of 2 (TWO) TB tests.
Two (2) TB tests:  One within the last 2 years, and a more recent one within the last 3 months.

So if you have never gotten test before, you will need to get 2 tests completed. Even if they are a week off from one another. This is so they fall within the requirement of Kaiser.
