Abstract

Evidences and good medical practices. Biohazard in healthcare settings is an issue for Occupational Physician (OP), owing to the potential relevant adverse effects for health care workers (HCW) and for the non complete effectiveness of primary prevention. Vaccination represents an effective tool to minimize risk of occupational and nosocomial transmission for many relevant communicable diseases. Implementation of vaccination campaigns may however present some critical aspects. The present study evaluates available scientific evidences and reports an Italian multicenter study (9 Hospitals, 3200 HCW), suggesting good medical practices in vaccination, while highlighting the role of the OP in a multidisciplinary context.
