Hepatitis B is a blood borne virus that poses an occupational risk to some healthcare workers since it can be spread by contact with infected blood or body fluids. Employees whose jobs require direct patient contact and/or contact with blood and/or contact with contaminated instruments should make sure they are immune to Hepatitis B.

UAB Employee Health offers vaccination to hospital employees whose job duties put them at risk. Please call our office for further information:
