GUIDANCE NOTE FOR APPLICANTS: TESTING FOR IMMUNITY AND INFECTION
You must protect patients, colleagues and yourself by being immunised against serious
communicable diseases when vaccines are available. The UK Department of Health
guidance recommends the following:
TUBERCULOSIS (TB).
Evidence of immunity and freedom from TB is required.
If you are coming from a country with a ‘low’ level of incidence (<40:100,000) evidence of
BCG vaccination, a BCG scar, a positive Mantoux test result or a negative Quantiferon-TB
Gold test is sufficient for enrolment. Students arriving from, or having lived in a ‘high’ level
of incidence country, (=>40:100,000) will need a Quantiferon-TB Gold test and a chest X-
ray if this is positive. You can check the TB rate in your country here:
World Health Organization (WHO) estimates of tuberculosis incidence by country
(published by PHE)

BCG vaccination can be given as required when you are seen in the Occupational Health
service (OHS) at the beginning of your course.
MEASLES & RUBELLA:
Medical students must be able to prove their immunity to measles and rubella. This can
either be with blood test results showing immunity (a positive IgG level) OR documentary
evidence of two MMR vaccinations having been given.
VARICELLA (Chickenpox):
Medical students must be able to prove their immunity to varicella (chickenpox). If you
grew-up in temperate climates then an oral history of infection is acceptable. If you’re from
a tropical and sub-tropical climate then serological screening should be performed.

Immunocompromised students will be unable to receive live vaccinations and it may be
necessary to advise the Medical School of restrictions required whilst respecting the
student’s right to medical confidentiality.
