Only 25 percent of US adults in high-risk groups for hepatitis B (HBV) infection, as identified by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), get vaccinated as recommended. HBV vaccination helps prevent new infection and interrupts further transmission of the virus.
At the completion of this activity, the participant will be able to:
- Discuss the epidemiology of acute and chronic hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection in the US
- Describe the long-term outcomes of chronic HBV infection
- Summarize CDC immunization recommendations for adult populations at risk for HBV infection
- Assess interventions to increase adult HBV vaccination rates for implementation in practice
