Impact of a Nurse Vaccination Program on Hepatitis B Immunity in a Swiss HIV Clinic.
Journal of Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndromes
ABSTRACT: We evaluated the impact of a nurse program for hepatitis B virus vaccination in a center from the Swiss HIV Cohort Study. Immunity (anti-HBs >10 IU/mL) increased from 32% to 76% in the intervention center (n = 238) where vaccine management was endorsed by nurses, but only from 33% to 39% in control centers (n = 2712, P < 0.001) where management remained in charge of physicians. Immunity against HBV in the HIV population is insufficient in Switzerland. Specific nurse vaccination program may efficiently improve health care.
