Tip 250: routine hepatitis B immunisation

In September/October 2017, Hepatitis B vaccine will be added to the routine immunisation schedule at 2, 3 and 4 months of age.

This will be done by replacing the existing pentavalent vaccine with a new hexavalent vaccine (Infanrix hexa® (DTaP/IPV/Hib/HepB).
