Description:

The New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (NYC DOHMH) received funding from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in 2000-2003 to integrate viral hepatitis services into an existing health care program. Viral hepatitis services were successfully integrated into a sexually transmitted disease (STD) clinic beginning May 2000. Since March 2003, hepatitis services were expanded to five additional STD clinics, and there are plans to implement the hepatitis program to other NYC DOHMH STD clinics. All services are free.

The program offers hepatitis A vaccine to STD patients at high risk for infection and hepatitis B vaccine to all STD clients who have not been vaccinated or previously exposed to hepatitis B virus. Hepatitis C counseling and testing is offered to those at high risk for hepatitis C virus infection.

In 2007, the STD clinic administered 1,137 doses of hepatitis A vaccine, 6,316 doses of hepatitis B vaccine, and identified 52 hepatitis C positive patients (52/789 =6.6%).

The New York City Department of Health & Mental Hygiene is now offering information important for the health of all New Yorkers. To sign up for these new and valuable updates, log-on to our website at www.nyc.gov/health/email and select the NYC DOHMH updates you'd like to receive.
