Hepatitis B - Travel Vaccinations

Following recent Public Health England guidance we are no longer routinely able to provide Hepatitis B vaccines for travel. There is a national shortage after production problems with the vaccine. Therefore practices are instructed to prioritise Hepatitis vaccines to ensure those with highest clinical risk are vaccinated. We have been advised the production and supply problem will have been resolved by January 2018.
