Resumen The results of a questionnaire survey addressed to all occupational health departments of the Paris Public Health Department seven years after the beginning of a vaccination campaign against hepatitis B showed a significantly positive outcome. On 15 February 1989, in 32 of the 45 departments questioned, 45% of the personnel at risk (14,528/32,034) were either completely vaccinated (32%) or in the course of being vaccinated (13%). Vaccination protection varied greatly from hospital to hospital, between departments, and between professional categories. The number of cases of occupational viral hepatitis dropped from 222 in 1980 to 37 in 1988, of which only 16 were hepatitis B.
