Clearance Review for Seneca Veterinary Program
You will be required to present this form completed and physician signed upon entry to each of your clinical placements. This means you need to ensure your documentation is up to date prior to each clinical term. Some of the documentation will require updating on a yearly basis so it is recommended you create a file to keep your paperwork in order.
Follow these recommended steps below for ensuring timely completion of required documentation.
Step 1 (Two months prior to clinical start date)
Visit your Health Care Provider
Your Health Care Provider is an essential source of information about your health records and current immunization status. If you do not have records of your past immunizations or vaccinations your Health Care Provider will request blood work in order to determine your current levels of immunization. If these lab reports determine that you do not have the necessary levels of immunity the doctor will then start a schedule of immunizations, which may need to be applied over two months. This process will take time, so it is imperative you schedule your initial visit with your healthcare provider as soon as possible.
How To: Make an appointment with your family doctor and bring your immunization form so that they can complete the necessary signatures.
Frequency: Prior to each placement if any components have expired.
Immunization and Medical Records
How to: If you have not previously received immunization you will need to arrange this through your family doctor or walk-in clinic. Pay attention to the schedule of immunization, some require multiple shots over a period of time and if you do not start early enough you will not complete it in time.
Medical records from your family doctor must include the completion of the following immunizations:
Pre-Exposure Immunization for Rabies
Rabies Titres (minimum 28 days after 3rd dose of Rabies vaccine)
Frequency: Medical must be valid for the field placement and updated annually.
