Immunizations

The development and implementation of routine immunization has been one of the most important scientific achievements in the history of medicine.  Diseases that were once rampant and/or devastating to human populations have either disappeared (smallpox, polio) or been greatly diminished (measles, mumps, hepatitis B) as a result of immunizations.

Many common diseases of adolescents and adults are preventable with vaccines.  These include pneumonia, meningitis, influenza, human papilloma virus (which is a cause of cervical cancer in women), and shingles.

Certain vaccines may need to be repeated at regular intervals, such as tetanus/diphtheria/pertussis, while others do not.

  • Purpose: In order to ensure that Temple employees remain healthy and reduce the impact of vaccine-preventable diseases on them, their families, and the workplace, Employee Health Services offers routine vaccinations for those who require them.

  • Procedure: Temple employees who would like to be up-to-date with current vaccine recommendations should:

    1. Visit the Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s website on vaccination: http://www2.cdc.gov/nip/adultImmSched/.
    2. Fill out the brief survey which will indicate which vaccines they should have.
    3. Call employee health at 215-204-2679 and inform our administrative specialist which vaccines you need.
    4. When the vaccines arrive, we will inform you to schedule an appointment to receive them.
