Abstract

A 25-year-old registered nurse comes for a visit to initiate prenatal care after receiving a positive result on a pregnancy test. On review of her vaccination status, she reports that she declined hepatitis B vaccination when it was offered by her current employer, since she does not draw blood and thus does not consider herself at risk for infection. Should she receive the vaccine? What are the current recommendations for hepatitis B vaccination?
