Abstract

In most industrialised countries the elimination of hepatitis B infection is highly reliant on effective vaccine delivery to injecting drug users. This paper highlights the very poor vaccine coverage achieved in England and Wales in the ten years since this problem was officially recognised and targeted. This is despite the existence of a comprehensive and well-utilised network of specialist services for injecting drug users.
