    I'm doing a weeks worth of work experience in the summer at a dental practice and they told me it was a requirement that I get the Hep B and TB jab. Ive done several other work experiences in different practices and don't see why i'll need them if I wont have 1-1 patient contact. I really don't want to get the vaccinations cause 1. i'll have to pay for them and 2. I might not go into dentistry in which case the vaccinations will be pointless. Any help pleaasseee?

    Because you'll most likely be dealing with all of the instruments and things like that, they'll want to be safe rather than sorry if it's a requirement then you can't argue with them, although if you really don't want to get them then you could always try and get some at a different place
