ABSTRACT: The city of Glasgow has a large population of injecting drug users (IDUs) who are likely to be susceptible to acute hepatitis B infection. We evaluated the effectiveness of a hepatitis B vaccination programme delivered at three existing types of services for IDUs. It was found that while uptake rates were generally low, they were higher at services where throughput of patients was lower, where clients had continuing relationships with services and where staff training and confidence were better.Communicable disease and public health / PHLS 01/2003; 5(4):321-3.
