Title Vaccinations at work. Regulations and responsibilities of the various people concerned [France]
Original title Vaccinations en milieu de travail. Réglementation et obligation des différents acteurs [France] [in French]
Bibliographic information 4th Quarter 1990, No.44, p.367-371. Illus. 23 ref.
Abstract In certain occupations some vaccinations are compulsory and others are recommended. Outside of these occupations, some vaccinations may be practical for the prevention of a particular occupational risk. Various compulsory and recommended vaccinations in France are presented, along with vaccinations under international regulations and requirements for vaccination at work. The responsibilities of the various people involved (employees, employers, industrial physicians) are explained and examples are given of how this responsibility may be assigned in two particular situations: contamination of a non-immunised individual and accidents with vaccines.
