If an employee elects not to have the appropriate vaccinations against the Hepatitis B virus, they must sign a "Hepatitis B Vaccination Waiver Form" releasing the City from any liability with regard to their contracting the Hepatitis B virus and any and all costs associated with their contraction of that disease.
The employees who will be affected by this policy are those in the following positions: Fire Chief, Assistant Fire Chief, Fire Marshall, Fire Shift Supervisors, Fire Station Officers, Fire Inspector, all Fire Fighters (including paid-on-call), all Sworn Police Officers.

Employees desiring to be vaccinated for Hepatitis A may do so at their own expense, and make their own arrangements with the Davis County Health Department or their personal physician. The City may arrange to provide this vaccination at the work place from time to time.
