Resumen This report analyses the results of serological tests involving 12,000 persons employed in public health services in Austria as a whole, and compares these results with data involving 1,900 employees of a large regional hospital. Hepatitis B antigens were found in the blood of 14.4% of the health service workers in Austria as a whole, and in the blood of 13.2% of the workers in the hospital (with particularly high rates in high-risk area: 50% in dialysis services and 20% in laboratory workers). There is further analysis by service, profession, age and length of employment in the field. There was a 45% reduction in the incidence of the disease after a vaccination campaign.
