Though no longer as common in the United States, chickenpox, hepatitis B, measles, mumps, and rubella are diseases that can all easily spread from person to person. The symptoms for these diseases can vary and, in certain cases, an individual may not experience any symptoms at all. Although each of these diseases can be treated with medication, certain individuals or groups are at greater risk for more severe complications. However, since the introduction of the chickenpox, hepatitis B, and MMR vaccines, the incidences of these five diseases have dropped significantly in the United States. To help protect the public and to prevent outbreaks, the CDC has established immunization guidelines for individuals to follow to protect themselves against each of these diseases.
Individuals working in fields such as healthcare or students that wish to be admitted to a school or university may be required to show proof of immunity to chickenpox, hepatitis B, measles, mumps, and rubella. Additional vaccination requirements may also exist, but these are generally the most common. For individuals that do not have their immunization records or that have the need to verify their immunity through testing, an immunity screening is an easy way to verify immunity to each of these diseases.

Chicken Pox Immunity Screen
Chickenpox is a disease caused by the varicella-zoster virus. It is highly contagious and is most often characterized by a red rash that covers the body within a few weeks of infection. Because of the introduction of a chickenpox vaccine, the disease is now considered rare. For information on vaccination, contact your medical provider or visit the CDC or Arizona Department of Health Services websites.

Hepatitis B Immune Status
Hepatitis B is a liver infection that is spread by blood or other bodily fluids. Anyone can contract the disease, but certain groups are more susceptible. One of the challenges of treating the disease is that many people will not experience any symptoms. Hepatitis B can be prevented by getting vaccinated. For information on vaccination, contact your medical provider or visit the CDC or Arizona Department of Health Services websites.

Measeles/Mumps/Rubella Immunity Screen*
Measles, mumps, and rubella are diseases that have been mostly eliminated in the United States due to vaccination. However, exposure to these diseases is still possible and outbreaks do still occur. Given the potential severity of measles, in particular, the CDC does recommend that individuals receive the MMR vaccine. For information on vaccination, contact your medical provider or visit the CDC or Arizona Department of Health Services websites.
