Hepatitis B

Read the guidance from the National Immunsiation Advisory Committee - Immunisation Guidelines for Ireland. Chapter 9 for the most up to date information about Hepatitis B. 

Note:

HBVaxPro is in short supply from the manufactures and stocks will be unavailable until 2021. The Guidelines state that:

For those at high risk of HBV infection

• For those with a level of anti-HBs <10m IU/ml. 2 months after the third dose, a repeated course of vaccination, preferably with an alternative hepatitis B vaccine, is recommended.

However currently there is no alternative, so a second course of Engerix should be given.

Please note any queries about laboratory results should be directed to the laboratory and not to the National Immunisation Office.
