Vaccination for Hepatitis B in Adults

You answered:

D Administer vaccine for both hepatitis A and hepatitis B.

This answer is incorrect. Although this client certainly should be offered hepatitis B vaccine based on her risk factors, she has no indications to require simultaneous hepatitis A vaccine. Although not unsafe to administer both hepatitis A and B vaccine to this client, hepatitis A vaccine in this setting is not required and would add additional cost.

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