Perinatal Hep B

Perinatal Hepatitis B Prevention Program

The North Dakota Department of Health (NDDoH) Perinatal Hepatitis B Prevention Program is a program designed to eliminate the incidence of hepatitis B infection in infants born to hepatitis B positive women. This is done by following infants born to hepatitis B positive women to ensure they receive the hepatitis B birth dose and hepatitis B immune globulin (HBIG) within 12 hours of birth, receive the additional hepatitis B vaccine doses to complete the series, and are tested for hepatitis B infection and immunity after they have completed the hepatitis B vaccination series.
