Description:
The Hepatitis B Vaccination in High-Risk Clients Program serves to prevent the spread of this vaccine-preventable and sexually transmitted disease. Our program offers hepatitis B vaccine to all clients who request STD services, HIV counseling and testing, and drug and alcohol treatment. Additionally, in March 2003, the program began offering hepatitis A vaccine and the hepatitis A and B combination vaccine to clients seen at STD clinics. Since the program has begun, the number of reported hepatitis B cases has dropped significantly. In 1997, 338 cases of hepatitis B were reported in Pennsylvania; in 2002, 232 acute cases were reported.
