  • 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.

    On February 25, 2009, the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) recommended routine hepatitis A vaccination for household members and other close personal contacts (e.g., regular babysitters) of adopted children newly arriving from countries with high or intermediate hepatitis A endemicity. This new recommendation complements previous ACIP recommendations for hepatitis A vaccination for persons traveling from the United States to countries with high or intermediate hepatitis A endemicity (including persons with travel related to international adoption), and post exposure prophylaxis for contacts of persons with hepatitis A. This report introduces the new recommendation and outlines the underlying epidemiologic and programmatic rationale.
