Hepatitis B Birth Dose Policies Achieve High Coverage Rates
Launched in 2013, Immunize.org’s Hepatitis B Birth Dose Honor Roll recognizes U.S. birthing facilities that have attained a hepatitis B vaccine birth dose coverage rate of 90% or greater. Honorees must also have written birth dose policies in place, including procedures and protocols in the event of medical errors.
Criteria for Inclusion
To be included in Immunize.org’s Hepatitis B Birth Dose Honor Roll:
- You have achieved, over a 12-month period, a coverage rate of 90% or greater for administering hepatitis B vaccine before facility discharge to all newborns (regardless of weight). This includes newborns whose parents refuse vaccination.
- You have written and implemented birth dose policies, procedures, and protocols to protect all newborns from hepatitis B virus infection prior to facility discharge
Fill out the form and tell us about your facility and vaccination policy. All fields are required unless otherwise specified.
