    • Hepatitis A and B
    • Gardasil (HPV)

    • Serum titers are blood tests that measure whether or not you are immune to a given disease(s). More specifically a quantitative serum titer is a titer with a numerical value indicating your actual degree of immunity to a disease(s). When titers are drawn they must be quantitative titers, and you must upload copies of the official laboratory printouts containing the numerical values for Mumps, Measles and Rubella immunity to the health portal under medical clearances/immunization upload.
