Mandatory Hepatitis B and Tuberculosis Vaccinations

Postby alessandro » Mon Nov 10, 2014 10:59 pm

This is where to get the blood test and the Mantoux challenge if you are already vaccinated:

Via dei Monti Tiburtini, 385
Pertini Hospital
Palazzina C
Downstairs (piano -1)
(Metro B Monti Tiburtini or take a bus from Verano)

Enter the building, go downstairs, turn right and right again, walk to the waiting room at the end of the hallway and take a number. Provide an ID and pay CASH at the window (about €25 for each test). Hours are 07:00 to 11:00 every day but Mantoux is only performed Monday, Tuesday, and Friday.

Three days later you get the Mantoux spot analyzed at Microbiology in Edificio B.
More info when I finish the test...

No problem! I should add that the tests are free for Italian citizens with an ASL card. The Mantoux reading was quick and easy. It's taken in a microbiology lab in the basement of Building B. They give you directions on how to get there when you're getting your intradermal.

NB the vaccinations are not urgent and you can get away with putting them off for a year or more.
