Adult Hepatitis B Virus (HBV) Vaccination: An Implementation Guide for Local Public Health



Welcome to NACCHO's Collection of Adult Hepatitis B Virus (HBV) Vaccination Tools and Resources


Local health departments (LHDs) and their partners can use these practical informational resources to provide HBV vaccine to populations at disproportionate risk for HBV infection. Each chapter includes tools and/or resources LHDs and their partners can use to begin or enhance a HBV vaccination initiative.  The tools included in this online resource are not defined as "best practices" but they have proven useful to the LHDs and related venues that developed them and can be modified to fit the needs of all users. Additionally, fact sheets available for download from each chapter's webpage provide context for using these tools and resources.

Viral Hepatitis and Your Local Health Department: Identifying Resources, Sharing Strategies, and Discussing Opportunities for your LHD and Community

The 2012 NACCHO Annual Conference showcased a number of sessions on local public health resources and strategies, including "Viral Hepatitis and Your Local Health Department: Identifying Resources, Sharing Strategies, and Discussing Opportunities for your LHD and Community." At this pre-conference session, attendees connected with leadership from the CDC’s Division of Viral Hepatitis and learned new strategies for addressing hepatitis B and C in their communities. Geoff Beckett, PA-C, MPH, Chief of the Prevention Branch at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention’s Division of Viral Hepatitis (DVH), presented on DVH’s current priorities; participants discussed successes, challenges to, and strategies for hepatitis vaccination; and all received training and hands-on-experience with the enhanced version of "NACCHO’s Adult Hepatitis B Virus Vaccination: An Implementation Guide for Local Public Health."
