Título Hepatitis B vaccine responsiveness in Connecticut public safety personnel
Información bibliográfica 22-29 Dec. 1993, Vol.270, No.24, p.2931-2934. 15 ref.
Resumen A survey was made of levels of hepatitis B antibody present among public safety personnel who had completed vaccination 1 to 6 months earlier. Of 258 individuals tested, 11.9% were found to have no or inadequate levels of antibody. The frequency of inadequate level of antibody increased significantly with age. Smoking, extreme obesity and increasing time interval since completing the vaccine series were also associated with inadequate levels of antibody. It is concluded that routine immunization of public safety personnel should include selective use of postvaccine testing.
