Vaccination for Hepatitis B in Adults

You answered:

C Do not offer vaccines since there is no role for hepatitis B vaccination in this client.

This answer is incorrect. This client has no prior history of vaccination for hepatitis B and should be offered vaccination at today’s visit. She has several indications for hepatitis B vaccination, including multiple sexual partners in the past 6 months and seeking care for a possible sexually transmitted infection.

Choose another answer:

A Give the first hepatitis B vaccination dose at today’s visit with recommendations for additional doses at 1 and 6 months.
B Send serologic studies for hepatitis B and defer on vaccination.
D Administer vaccine for both hepatitis A and hepatitis B.
