This course will help you understand the issues surrounding Hepatitis B infection in the research environment. Information presented is derived from CDC and NIOSH sources. Hepatitis B is one of the most frequently acquired Laboratory Acquired Infections and there is good evidence that it can be effectively prevented. This course addresses many misconceptions about Hepatitis B disease and immunization. Anyone who thinks it is better to sign a Hepatitis B declination form than to be immunized should definitely take the couple minutes it takes to complete this course and educate themselves with the facts.

Course duration estimate:

10 minutes

Course Required for those who will be working with bloodborne pathogens (human source materials, HIV, hepatitis B virus, hepatitis C virus, or other potentially infectious materials) AND want to decline the hepatitis B vaccine.
