From 1986 to 91,174 dialysis patients were studied. The prevalence of previous HBV infection and of chronic carriers was 33.3 and 4.6%, respectively. Immunization rate after vaccination (3 doses) was 63%. In 1991, we proposed a vacination with 4 doses and recommend a 6-monthly anti-HBs evaluation to assess the timing of any booster dose needed.
