Although hepatitis B vaccinations have been integrated in the Universal Immunization Program (UIP) in India over a decade, only half of the children are immunized against hepatitis B. The national average in hepatitis B vaccination conceals large variations across states, districts and socio-economic groups. In this context, the aim of this paper is to examine the spatial heterogeneity and contextual determinants of hepatitis B vaccination across the districts of India. Using data of 199,899 children aged 12-59 months from the National Family Health Survey-4 (NFHS-4), 2015-16 we have examined the district level spatial distribution and clustering of hepatitis B vaccination with the help of Morans I and Local Indicator of Spatial Autocorrelation (LISA) measures. We investigated the low coverage of HBV vaccination using spatial autoregressive models (SAR) at the meso scale. And we applied multivariate binary logistic regression analysis to understand the micro-level predictors of hepatitis B vaccination.

Vaccination Report: Why hepatitis B vaccine for all children?. Nineteen states have passed laws requiring three doses of hepatitis B vaccine for all healthy children. Most 12-hour-old newborns cant leave the newborn nurseries of hospitals without being injected with hepatitis B virus vaccine.. Why?. Not content with using the hepatitis B vaccine in high risk populations such as IV drug users, prostitutes, prisoners and sexually promiscuous adults for which this vaccine was created, drug companies and officials at the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) have targeted vulnerable newborns in the first moments of life to find a larger and more reliable market for their produce.. Using the justification that babies born to mothers infected with hepatitis B disease have an 85-95% risk of developing chronic hepatitis B infection and promoting the idea that injecting all healthy babies with hepatitis B vaccine will protect them when they are teenagers and become sexually active, CDC officials have ...
Dr. J. Barthelow Classen, MD presents compelling evidence linking hepatitis B vaccine and other vaccines commonly used in childhood to the rise in type 1 insulin dependent diabetes. Following is a brief discussion. To access the full article and others, please visit Dr. Classens website.. Discussion. Published data links the hepatitis B vaccine to an epidemic of IDDM (Classen, DC & Classen, 1997). The incidence of type I diabetes in the 0-19 year old age group has been studied since 1982 in Christchurch, New Zealand and a rise in type I diabetes was noted to occur in 1989 (Classen,JB, 1996b) after the initiation of an hepatitis B immunization program. The government of New Zealand introduced a massive Hepatitis B vaccination program in 1988 which was extended to include all children under 16 and over 70% of children were vaccinated within a few years with almost all of the immunization starting after 6 week of life. The initial vaccine was a human blood derived product but was switched to a ...
A second area of concern is the VAERS reports involving Hepatitis B vaccine administered with other vaccines (vaccine cocktails). Health officials are fond of dismissing those reports as being attributable to Hepatitis B vaccine, because of the multiple other antigens present (almost as if they wanted to cloak Hepatitis B vaccine reactions from scrutiny). Lets avoid that controversy and focus on the extremely disturbing VAERS data of Hepatitis B vaccine with other vaccines. These reports amount to only one third of total reports (7,275), but account for two thirds of total deaths (291). The median onset of those deaths was 2 days after vaccination -- displaying a clear temporal association. The median age of death was 0.5 years in this group. 50% of all Hepatitis-B-vaccine-cocktail reports were serious (died, emergency room, hospitalized, disabled). I grouped convulsive reactions together from the Hep-B-vaccine-cocktail data and found a deeply disturbing pattern. These were anything labeled ...
PURPOSE: Hepatitis B vaccine has become an effective means of preventing complications of hepatitis B. However, it occasionally induces serious side effects. We report a case of multiple evanescent white dot syndrome (MEWDS) that occurred following hepatitis B vaccination. METHODS: A 23-year-old woman with a one-week history of progressive loss of vision in the left eye and bilateral photopsia was referred for examination. Her symptoms appeared 24 hours after a booster intramuscular injection of hepatitis B vaccine. RESULTS: Clinical examination, fluorescein angiography, and the course of events were typical of MEWDS. CONCLUSIONS: This case demonstrates the occasional occurrence of MEWDS after hepatitis B vaccine and suggests that hepatitis B virus immunization may be a risk factor for this retinal condition.

The hepatitis B vaccine protects against infection with the hepatitis B virus. A hepatitis B infection can damage the liver and lead to liver cancer.. The vaccine is given to adults in three or four doses. You receive the shots in your upper arm. After you get all the doses, you will be protected for at least 15 years. This vaccine is safe for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding.. If you are exposed to hepatitis B before you get all the shots, you may need a hepatitis B immunoglobulin (HBIG) shot. This gives you instant protection. The HBIG shot will prevent infection until your hepatitis B vaccine takes effect.. The vaccine may cause pain at the injection site. It can also cause a mild fever for a short time. You should not get the hepatitis B vaccine if you are allergic to bakers yeast. This is the kind of yeast used to make bread. And you should not get the next dose if you had a bad reaction to the first shot.. Ask your doctor about when you need the next shot.. ...
The findings of this research suggest that there is indeed a low number (64/331, 19%) of HCWs vaccinated against hepatitis B in Lusaka district. In this study 281 (85.0%) of the HCWs knew that a vaccine against hepatitis B exists and 321 (97.0%) of the HCWs were willing to get vaccinated if the vaccine were to become available in their institution. A high knowledge base on the existence of the vaccine among HCWs and high willingness to be vaccinated suggests that the reason for low vaccination prevalence among HCWs is not by their own doing. Perhaps low vaccination rates can be due to the unavailability of the vaccine in the institution due to a non-stringent policy on the vaccination of HCWs.. Other studies have shown some interesting findings, for example, a study done in Uganda, found the prevalence of hepatitis B vaccination among HCWs at 38.4% [12] and 83.6% in Kuala lumpa [13]. In this study, out of the 64 HCWs that were vaccinated against hepatitis B, 35 (54.7%) had completed full ...

We compared the long-term effectiveness of accelerated (0-1-2 months) and standard (0-1-6 months) hepatitis B vaccination schedules in preventing hepatitis B virus (HBV) infections and anti-hepatitis B (anti-HBs) antibody loss during 2-year follow-up in 707 drug users (HIV and HBV negative at enrollment and completed 3 vaccine doses) from February 2004 to October 2009. Results. Drug users in the accelerated schedule group had significantly lower HBV infection rates, but had a similar rate of anti-HBs antibody loss compared with the standard schedule group over 2 years of follow-up. No chronic HBV infections were observed. Hepatitis C ...
Hepatitis B is a global public health issue, with some 2 billion people having current or past infection. In Africa, 65 million are chronically infected, an estimated 2.5 million of them in South Africa (SA). Hepatitis B and the associated complications of cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma are entirely vaccine preventable. SA was one of the first ten countries in Africa to introduce universal hepatitis B vaccination in April 1995, but has no birth dose or catch-up programme. Although universal infant vaccination in SA has been successful in increasing population immunity to hepatitis B, improvements in terms of implementing protocols to screen all pregnant mothers for hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg) and ensuring full hepatitis B coverage, especially in rural areas, is required. The World Health Organization has recommended a birth dose of hepatitis B vaccine in addition to the existing hepatitis B vaccine schedule in order to further decrease the risk of perinatal transmission. We recommend

Background & objectives: The reported low relapse rates after 24 months multidrug therapy (MDT) for multibacillary leprosy (MB) led to the recommendation of reducing duration of therapy to 12 months. However, only a few reports exist on long term follow up data after 12 months fixed duration therapy (FDT). The present study was done to assess the incidence of relapse in MB leprosy patients after 12 months treatment. Methods: The leprosy patients detected in field surveys during 2001-2006 in Agra district, Uttar Pradesh, India, were put on WHO-MDT and followed up for treatment completion, relapse, reactions and development of disability. The assessment was done clinically by following up the patients until January 2011. Data collected were analyzed for risk and survival analysis. Results: The incidence of relapse was found to be 1.97/100 person years of follow up. The incidence of relapse by age (34 yr vs ,34 yr), sex (male vs female), delay in detection (,36 months vs ,36 months) and smear ...
Thimerosal, a mercury-based compound, is no longer used as a preservative in any of the pediatric hepatitis B vaccines licensed in the United States. On March 28, 2000, SmithKline Beecham Biologicals (Rixensart, Belgium)* received approval from the Food and Drug Administration of a supplement to its hepatitis B license to include the manufacture of single-antigen, preservative-free hepatitis B vaccine (Engerix-B, pediatric/adolescent); distribution of this product has begun. A single-antigen, preservative-free hepatitis B vaccine (Recombivax HB, pediatric) from Merck Vaccine Division (West Point, Pennsylvania) had earlier received similar approval (1). A preservative-free Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib)/hepatitis B combination vaccine (Comvax) from Merck Vaccine Division also is available. An adequate supply of preservative-free hepatitis B vaccine is available for all infant and childhood vaccinations. Thimerosal preservative-containing hepatitis B vaccines may continue to be used for ...
As HIV disease progresses in HIV infected people, their immune responses to infectious and other foreign invaders becomes weaker; in particular, the cellular (T-cell) immune response is particularly affected by HIV. A boosting agent called CpG7909 ODN may be an ideal adjuvant for vaccines given to HIV infected people, because it may help elicit an increased CD8 T-cell response. This study will evaluate the safety of and immune response to a hepatitis B virus vaccine series given with CpG7909 ODN in HIV infected and uninfected people.. There will be three groups in this study; participants will be stratified by baseline CD4 counts and viral load. Within each group, participants will be randomly assigned to receive 3 injections of hepatitis B vaccine with CpG7909 ODN or 3 injections of hepatitis B vaccine alone. Injections will be given at study entry and Months 1 and 6. There will be 10 study visits; a physical exam and blood collection will occur at each visit. ...
It has recently been announced there is currently a global shortage of the hepatitis B vaccine due to problems with the manufacturing process.

In 1978-1981, the CDC conducted a hepatitis B vaccine experiment on homosexual men living in New York City, San Francisco and Los Angeles. HIV/AIDS was first detected among the participants in the CDC hepatitis B vaccine trial and quickly spread throughout the gay community in those cities. A body of evidence, including a detailed statistical analysis of the documented time line of when HIV infection was detected in the mens blood and reported to the CDC. Dissidents who have studied the available published data are convinced that this ill-conceived experiment precipitated the devastating AIDS epidemic in Americas homosexual community. The gay men in the experiment were injected with a vaccine that had been made using human hepatitis B infected blood which was injected into chimpanzees known to be infected with the cancer causing simian virus 40 (SV40); the virus that had contaminated the polio vaccine.. Before these CDC experiments there were no reported cases of HIV or AIDS in America. The ...

The institute was established in 1920-21 as a primary center for researching infectious diseases and producing biological products, vaccines, and serums. A vaccine for pox was the first product of the institute. As a result of major changes that were made following the 1979 revolution, most of the scientific activities and productivity at the institute have been reduced to a minimum level. The Biotechnology Department at the Pasteur institute was formed in 1993 and is one of the pillars of modern genetic engineering in Iran.. In 1993-94, Cuba and Iran signed a biotechnology transfer agreement that brought Cubas recombinant DNA hepatitis B vaccine industrial production equipment to the Pasteur institute. Once the production unit is up and running (five sections, 14,000 square meters), the Pasteur institute will be able to produce 10 million hepatitis B vaccine doses per year. This institute is the only one of its kind in Iran capable of producing new biotechnology products in an industrial ...

Universal hepatitis B vaccination was recommended for U.S. newborns in 1991; however, safety findings are mixed. The association between hepatitis B vaccination of male neonates and parental report of autism diagnosis was determined. This cross-sectional study used weighted probability samples obtained from National Health Interview Survey 1997-2002 data sets. Vaccination status was determined from the vaccination record. Logistic regression was used to estimate the odds for autism diagnosis associated with neonatal hepatitis B vaccination among boys age 3-17 years, born before 1999, adjusted for race, maternal education, and two-parent household. Boys vaccinated as neonates had threefold greater odds for autism diagnosis compared to boys never vaccinated or vaccinated after the first month of life. Non-Hispanic white boys were 64% less likely to have autism diagnosis relative to nonwhite boys. Findings suggest that U.S. male neonates vaccinated with the hepatitis B vaccine prior to 1999 (from ...
The AAFP, along with the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices, the American Academy of Pediatrics and the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, has endorsed a birth-dose initiative from the Immunization Action Coalition that recommends newborns be given the first dose of hepatitis B vaccine before discharge from U.S. hospitals and birth centers. The initiative is summarized in a new guidebook that defines best practices for newborn hepatitis B immunization.

Sexual Health: Hepatitis B vaccines. Vaccines against hepatitis B Vaccinations for hepatitis B were discovered in the 1970s and are now very safe, sophisticated, and effective. Vaccinations are injected into an arm muscle in a 3-step process. After the first injection, the arm shot is repeated 1 month and 6 months later. This vaccine regimen works in most people, providing them with long-term protection and, for some, even life-long protection.
The Vietnamese Health Department is coming out and ending the use of hepatitis B vaccines throughout the entire country of Vietnam. The decision was made after three different families lost their babies after the precious young ones were inoculated with standard, proven hepatitis B vaccinations. The three babies died on July 20th in the central province of Quant Tri. The cause of their death is listed as anaphylactic shock. Officials from Vietnams National Expanded Program on Immunization reported that the vaccines were not expired, were properly stored, and were properly administered. Awkwardly, the chairperson of the program asked parents to "keep calm and continue vaccinating their children ...
Abstract Thirty Egyptian males, 8-31 years of age, with active Schistosoma mansoni infection and negative serologic tests for hepatitis B markers, were vaccinated with a recombinant hepatitis B vaccine (Merck's Recombivax®). The vaccine was given intramuscularly in the deltoid region in three 10 µg doses at 0, 1, and 6 months. All patients were treated with praziquantel 2 months after the first vaccination. Sera were collected every 2 months for 12 months and tested for anti-HBs using a quantitative ELISA technique. There were no side reactions except for mild local soreness at the injection site in 3 patients. At 12 months, all subjects seroconverted (antibody levels > 10 mIU/mL); 24 patients (80%) developed antibody levels > 1,000 mIU/mL. As with a plasma-derived vaccine, antibody levels were negatively correlated with increasing spleen size. A recombinant hepatitis B vaccine was safe and immunogenic when given to patients with schistosomiasis mansoni.

Are you a hepatitis B vaccine non-responder? Approximately 5-15% of people who receive the vaccine are considered non-responders. This is especially important for health care workers, families living in households with people that have HBV, and others who may be at increased risk of exposure to HBV. A vaccine non-responder is someone that does not build up an adequate immune response after receiving two, 3-shot series of the HBV vaccine. In other words, they complete one series of the HBV vaccine, and follow it with a surface antibody test (HBsAb or Anti-HBs) 4-6 weeks following the last injection of the series. If the anti-HBs titre is not greater than 10IU/l, than the series is repeated, preferably with an HBV vaccine from a different manufacturer, and the person is once again tested for immunity by testing for adequate anti-HBs. (See previous blog, "Got Hepatitis B? Keeping loved ones safe though HBV vaccination" for details). Fortunately there are other options for those concerned with being ...
