Current global shortage of hepatitis B vaccine

There is currently a global shortage of hepatitis B vaccine which has been caused by problems in the manufacturing process.

Public Health England, working with NHS England, the Department of Health and the manufacturers, have put in place a series of measures so that the NHS and other providers can use the available vaccine for those at highest immediate risk. Measures are expected to continue until the beginning of 2018 and will be kept under review.
