Abstract

In 1996, the vaccination coverage against hepatitis B virus among 3,157 healthcare workers in Italy was inversely related to the level of hepatitis B virus endemicity in the area of residence. Youngest age and lowest years of employment were independent predictors of the likelihood of vaccine acceptance.
