The Immunization/Vaccination Panel involves three tests used to confirm immunity to certain infectious diseases. Most health care facilities, schools, and jobs require proof of testing completion for each of these tests prior to interacting within their environments.
Measles, Mumps, Rubella (MMR): Determines an individual’s immunity to Measles, Mumps, and Rubella by measuring antibody levels. Also, used to diagnose MMR.
Hepatitis B Surface Antigen (HBsAg): Screens for the Hepatitis B virus as well as confirm immunity to the virus through the presence of the Hepatitis B antibodies and antigens.
Varicella Zoster Virus (VZV): Determines an individual’s immunity to Chickenpox (children) and Shingles (adults) by measuring antibody levels. Immunity is noted through the development of IgG antibodies.
