Occupational Health Requirements

General Information

  • Reminder that Hawai'i is a high threat area for certain diseases and that we have additional requirements than most places.
  • Proponent for this is Tripler Army Medical Center(TAMC) Regulation 40-27, Pre-Placement Medical Immunization Requirements for Military and Civilian Students/Trainees, 25 February 2019.

Student/Trainee/Observer Responsibilities

  • No-later-than fifty (50) days out from start of educational rotation/training or observation, provide appropriate educational coordinator/sponsor Tripler Army Medical Center Form 944, Immunization Requirement.
    • Laboratory titers and verifiable clinical reports are the preferred documentation for immunizations. A summary or list of immunizations without verifiable clinical documentation attached is not acceptable and may result in a delay or cancellation of training/observation at Tripler Army Medical Center.
    • Since immunization records are Protected Health Information (PHI), under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) the transmission of such will be via a secured website such as DoD SAFE (Department of Defense Safe Access File Exchange) and follow the instructions on the website for submission.
  • Contact appropriate educational coordinator/sponsor for official address to send immunization form.
  • You will not contact the Occupational Health Services for any reason. If you have any questions concerning immunizations, please address your concerns with your educational coordinator/sponsor.
