Sorry you've not had any responses about this. Are you sure you’ve posted in the right place? Posting in the specific Study Help forum should help get more responses. Hopefully someone will be able to get back to you

It's asking if you have proof of vaccinations for Hepatitis B and Tuberculosis (BCG jab), which are required for most healthcare professionals to have. These are not part of the standard vaccinations given when you are a child, although sometimes Hep B is included in a travel vaccination.

If you think you may have had these vaccinations you can go to your GP for proof from your medical records of the injection being given. Testing for sero-conversion is an extra check that the vaccination has worked, and is done by taking a blood test, this is necessary for Hep B as the vaccination does not always take well and a booster may be required. Proof that the TB vaccination has worked is the scar on your arm or a Mantoux test.

I'm not sure for dental hygiene courses, but for medicine if we do not have these vaccinations on entry then they give them to us and do the testing (free of charge). You should contact your uni to see if they arrange for you to have these vaccinations, or if you are required to organise them yourself; if you have to go to your GP for them you may have to pay for them, so it is worth checking this out.

EDIT: if you haven't had these vaccinations then leave it blank, you can get them later as advised by your uni
