PPD Testing

A PPD Test determines whether or not you have tuberculosis (TB), a serious infection that spreads through the air. The Employee Health Office will administer the test to volunteers free of charge.

Flu Shot

During flu season (as decided by the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention), volunteers must receive a flu shot prior to their first day of work. Please provide proof of the flu shot to the hospital. Ask your Volunteer Services recruiter about free flu vaccines provided by Summerlin Hospital.
