HC Deb 12 April 2002 vol 383 c674W
Mr. Hoban

To ask the Secretary of State for Health if he will list the criteria to be met for people to receive Hepatitis B vaccines free of charge. [44657]

Hepatitis B immunisation is provided free of charge, if in a general practitioner's clinical opinion, the procedure is medically necessary. Some groups typically at risk from infection are health care workers, medical students, injecting drug misusers, haemophiliacs and patients with chronic renal failure.
