Abstract

The feasibility of introducing universal hepatitis B immunisation was assessed by offering the vaccine to all 11-12 year old pupils in Greater Glasgow (approximately 10,800). Consent was received from 92% of the school roll, and 91.3%, 89.2% and 80.3% received at least 1, at least 2, and 3 doses respectively. The findings of this study constitute key evidence for the ongoing debate in the UK on hepatitis B vaccination.
