Vaccination for Hepatitis B in Adults
Last updated: March 1, 2010
A 28-year-old woman presents to a Sexually Transmitted Disease (STD) clinic for evaluation of vaginal discharge and is concerned she may have a sexually transmitted infection. She reports having a new sex partner in the past month and a total of three sex partners in the past six months. Other than a history of genital herpes with intermittent outbreaks, she reports being in good health. On review of her medical history she reports never having been vaccinated for hepatitis B.
Along with a thorough evaluation for STDs, which is the BEST option for this client regarding hepatitis B vaccination?
