While hepatitis A and B vaccines are specifically recommended for gay, bisexual and other men who have sex with men (GBM), vaccine rates among this group remain low. With outbreaks of hepatitis A happening across the country and a rise in acute hepatitis B in a number of states, it is critical that hepatitis vaccinations reach the right communities. This webinar will provide an update on the multi-state hepatitis A outbreak, an overview of new and existing hepatitis A and B vaccination recommendations, highlight Colorado’s response to a hepatitis A outbreak in their GBM community, and introduce new resources and outreach materials developed by CDC.
