Hepatitis B and the routine childhood immunisation schedule
This CPD activity consists of 10 multiple-choice questions (MCQs) designed to test your knowledge on childhood immunisation and hepatitis B
These MCQs, written by David Green and Laura Craig, relate to their expert article, Introduction of a hexavalent vaccine into the routine childhood immunisation schedule, which covers the routine childhood immunisation schedule and the introduction of the hexavalent vaccine, including protection against hepatitis B. These questions have been developed for your CPD.
On completion of this activity, you should:
- have a greater understanding of hepatitis B
- understand the reasoning and benefits of introducing a hexavalent vaccine into the routine immunisation schedule
- understand when to implement the neonatal selective-immunisation programme for babies at risk of hepatitis B.
