Hepatitis B Resources for Delivery Hospitals


Delivery hospitals should review the HBsAg status of all women admitted for labor and delivery, administer the hepatitis B birth dose vaccine and the hepatitis B immune globulin as necessary, and advise that her newborn complete the vaccine series with the pediatrician. For more information, refer to Prev​enting Perinatal Hepatitis B - Guidelines for Labor and Delivery Units​.

Delivery hospitals should report all deliveries from HBsAg positive women. To report an HBsAg-positive delivery to the Perinatal Hepatitis B Prevention Program, complete and fax this report to (408) 792-1304: Hospital Report Form.
