  1. Hello! I'm a semi-new grad PA-C who has been on the job hunt in my state for the past few months. There's a local FT vaccine clinic opportunity for APPs that I'm interested in applying to, but the post doesn't have a lot of details on what the responsibilities of the PA-C would be. Other similar job openings have a range of different tasks listed, with some being as simple as just administering vaccines, while others have the PA provide necessary patient education, monitor patients, etc. I could also see the PA being utilized to help direct care should adverse reactions occur, etc., but I have

At no time did I feel like the author’s theoretical patients were caricatured or that his advice to medical practitioners was based on s
  5. I've recently been accepted into a program (yay!) and now there's some immunizations and paperwork to get done. Tdap, meningococcal, and flu for immunizations. And MMR, varicella, and Hep B for titer lab reports to show immunity. I've just recently passed the age limit to stay on my parents health insurance and so was curious of any cheap ways to get these done for an uninsured person.
