Hepatitis: Vaccination

Question for Department of Health and Social Care

UIN 88728, tabled on 7 December 2021

To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, how many people were vaccinated against the hepatitis D virus in the last three years.

Answered on

There is no licensed vaccine for hepatitis D and therefore the United Kingdom does not have a hepatitis D vaccination programme. Hepatitis D virus can only infect people who have hepatitis B, for which there is an immunisation programme which will prevent hepatitis D infection.
