From the expert

Working in healthcare can put you at a higher risk of being exposed to some viruses. With this blood test, you can check that you are protected against certain viruses and demonstrate immunity to your employer.  
 
Our Occupational Immunity Blood Test will tell you whether you are immune to the varicella-zoster virus (VZV), the hepatitis B virus (HBV), measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR). The presence of antibodies can indicate that you have recovered from an infection, or you are successfully vaccinated. 
 
Chickenpox and shingles are both caused by VZV. Some groups of people are at higher risk of complications if they become infected with VZV, including pregnant women and people who have weakened immune systems.  
 
Hepatitis B is a liver infection caused by HBV which spreads through contact with blood or other body fluids from an infected person. This test looks for hepatitis B surface antibodies (anti-HBs) in the blood.  
 
Measles, mumps, and rubella are highly infectious conditions that can have serious health complications. Measles and mumps are contagious viral infections transmitted through respiratory secretions or saliva (with mumps only). Rubella is a viral infection that causes a fine red rash and flu-like symptoms, such as a high temperature, headache, and a general feeling of being unwell.
