  • Description:
    The following statement updates all previous recommendations on protection against hepatitis B virus infection, including use of hepatitis B vaccine and hepatitis B immune globulin for prophylaxis against hepatitis B virus infection (MMWR 1985;34:313-24,329-35, MMWR 1987;36:353-66, and MMWR 1990:39 [No.RR-2]:8-19) and universal screening of pregnant women to prevent perinatal hepatitis B virus transmission (MMWR 1988;37:341-46,51, and MMWR 1990;39[No.RR-2]:8-19). Recommendations concerning the prevention of other types of viral hepatitis are found in MMWR 1990;39(No.RR-2):1-8, 22-26. This document provides the rationale for a comprehensive strategy to eliminate transmission of hepatitis B virus in the United States. This prevention strategy includes making hepatitis B vaccine a part of routine vaccination schedules for all infants.
