Title Use of an accelerated immunization schedule for combined hepatitis A and B protection in the corporate traveler
Bibliographic information Aug 2008, Vol.50, No.8, p.945-950. Illus. 44 ref.
Abstract Increased international business travel to moderate or high endemic areas of hepatitis A and B may leave many business travellers at risk for infection if not vaccinated. Often, the decision to travel to these regions is taken less than two months before departure. Because many areas endemic for hepatitis A are also endemic for hepatitis B, accelerated administration of the combined vaccine can offer protection for international business travellers destined for these countries, and should be part of corporate travel immunization programmes.
