Study: More than half of at-risk people don’t get HBV vaccine

Brown University researchers said 51.4% of U.S. adults at high risk for hepatitis B, including injectable drug users and those who have risky sex, were not vaccinated against the disease even though more than half of that group potentially could have received the vaccine. Researchers said 95% of new HBV cases come from those who have behavioral risk factors. HealthDay News (1/20)
