Bibliographic information Jan.-Mar. 1992, Vol.39, No.155, p.49-55. 21 ref.
Abstract The Department of Occupational Health of Cádiz (Spain) planned a programme for the prevention of hepatitis B in personnel of child assistance centres. This programme consisted of two subprogrammes: (1) information on the disease, its control, protection and prevention measures; and (2) vaccination. This article provides information on the first stage of the vaccination subprogramme aimed at examining the immunological condition of the population under study. The prevalence of hepatitis B markers in the study population was even higher than in general hospital personnel. For this reason, hepatitis B prevention and vaccination programmes are recommended in such institutions.
