CAS Alert: Shortage Of Adult Hepatitis B Vaccine

There is a global shortage of hepatitis B vaccine which is currently impacting severely on the UK supply. The situation is particularly critical during August but there is likely to still be some limitations on supply until early 2018. PHE have developed temporary recommendations to support clinicians undertaking an individual risk assessment to ensure that stock is available for those individuals at highest and most immediate risk of exposure to hepatitis B.
