- Hep B Declination StatementLast Updated: 10/24/2012
Following is the Hep B Declination Statement excerpted from the OSHA website, the fact that there IS one, should alert you to the availability of opting out. If your employer requires the Hep B series, just ask for the OSHA opt-out form, and if they cannot (read won't) supply it, feel free to copy/paste/print from here.
Hepatitis B Declination Statement*
The following statement of declination of hepatitis B vaccination must be signed by an employee who chooses not to accept the vaccine. The statement can only be signed by the employee following appropriate training regarding hepatitis B, hepatitis B vaccination, the efficacy, safety, method of administration, and benefits of vaccination, and that the vaccine and vaccination are provided free of charge to the employee. The statement is not a waiver; employees can request and receive the hepatitis B vaccination at a later date if they remain occupationally at risk for hepatitis B.
