Just did a 2 man sewer with one of my coworkers and through our conversation he told me he hasn't had his hepatitis vaccinations or a tetanus shot. I told him to talk to the boss about it and get it done. Appearently he was told it would have to be done on his dime. I understand to a point but I feel like its a serious issue. I don't feel like someone should work in $hit without being vaccinated. So my two questions for you guys, is it common practice for employers to pay for their employees shots? And would you let somone work for you in sewer and drains when you know that they are not vaccinated for hepatitis?

I have mine but I do belive it would have to be the employers that pay for it since I see it as being a personal protection equipment in our line of work. The employer also pays for other safety equipment and safety is what it provides.
