Abstract

We evaluated hepatitis B vaccination coverage and documentation of antibody to hepatitis B surface antigen (anti-HBs) concentration among a cohort of healthcare students. Of 4,075 students, 59.8% had documentation of vaccination and 83.8% had anti-HBs concentration greater than or equal to 10 mIU/mL. Documenting hepatitis B vaccination and anti-HBs concentration among healthcare students is needed to prevent transmission in healthcare settings.
