||The cost of vaccinating 40,000 Belgian health-care workers against hepatitis-B has been more than recovered by a very serious reduction in the number of compensable cases of the disease. The Belgian Insurance Fund for Occupational Diseases has been paying the costs of hepatitis-B vaccinations since 1983, and this financial investment has proved to be beneficial to the Fund.
