Hepatitis B Vaccine Adherence Schedule Comparison Study

A recent study compared two cohorts of adult hepatitis B virus vaccines in order to determine which hepatitis B vaccine schedule recipients were more likely to complete. The study suggests that use of an adult hepatitis B vaccine series with fewer doses is associated with higher series completion.

Regardless of which vaccine series is used, it’s important to make sure that all vaccinators – pharmacists, student pharmacists, and pharmacy technicians alike – are protected from potential hepatitis B infections that could occur through needlestick injuries.
