Hepatitis A Vaccination Rates Low in Adolescents


CDC researchers have found that hepatitis A vaccination coverage appeared to be low among United States adolescents aged 13 to 17 in 2009. The national rate of one-dose hepatitis A coverage was 42.0%. Of the two-dose hepatitis A vaccination series, 70% were completed.
