Abstract

Because hepatitis A infection may be more severe in patients with chronic liver disease, we vaccinated 33 children who were chronic HBsAg carriers against hepatitis A virus. Anti-hepatitis A virus seroconversion rates after the first, second, and third doses were 90.9%, 96.9%, and 100%, respectively.
