Abstract

This study estimated the number of HCWs with protective antibody levels 5 and 10 years after HBV vaccination. Kaplan-Meier probabilities of protective levels were 0.95 at 60 days after vaccination, 0.87 at 5 years, and 0.79 at 10 years. Those without protective levels displayed good response 7 and 30 days after a booster
