• Hepatitis B
  • For Healthcare Personnel

In light of the 2023 CDC hepatitis B screening recommendations, should a healthcare worker who needs to be tested for anti-HBs to confirm immunity after HepB vaccination have the triple panel screening test (anti-HBs, anti-HBc, HBsAg) instead of an isolated anti-HBs?

The 2023 CDC recommendation is for all adults to have a triple panel screen for hepatitis B at least once in a lifetime. If the healthcare worker has never been screened, it would be ideal to do the triple panel screen in this situation.
