Abstract

We describe neonatal hepatitis B virus (HBV) vaccine policies in Colorado before and after thimerosal recommendations, plans for use of thimerosal-free HBV vaccine, and nurses' awareness of high-risk criteria for HBV vaccination. The results suggest that fewer neonates are receiving HBV vaccine at birth hospitals.
