Jean Piernicki from University Hospital Southampton asks:

Vaccination Histories

We issue vaccination reports directly from eOPAS, by email,  to employees. The report is headed and has an electronic address stamp on it. It also clearly identifies IVS bloods and EPP clearance and our address.

I am aware that some OH departments insist that  there is a signature on the vaccination history report. Why? I have been told a variety of “departmental and anecdotal reasons” which I suspect are based on historic practices.  I am looking for  the evidence that states a vaccination history requires a signature.
