Hepatitis B immunisation


All Queensland Health and some other host organisations require you to be fully immune to Hepatitis B, by completing the course of vaccinations, prior to commencing placement.

For further information regarding the Queensland Health requirements for Hepatitis B immunisations, refer to Queensland Health Hep B Vaccination factsheet (PDF 125KB).

There is also detailed information available at Immunisations Australia.
