Traduction en anglais : Prevention of hepatitis B at a school for mentally handicapped children.
Prevention of Hepatitis B at a School for Mentally Handicapped Children : Between 1988 and 1993 two female teachers of a school for mentally handicapped children in Osnabrück were infected with hepatitis B. Some of these children are hepatitis B virus (HBV) carriers.
We offered from May 1994 through 1995 free information, tests and vaccinations to children, parents and teachers to improve hepatitis B immunity.
At the end of that time 65 - 70% of children and teachers were immune because of the vaccination, 6% because of an earlier hepatitis B infection.
The paedagogic, hygienic, and medical problems related to the risk of infection are discussed, especially with regard to the new regulation in Lower Saxony and the new recommendation by the Permanent Committee for Vaccination Problems in the Federal Republic of Germany.
