All women attending antenatal clinics will be routinely tested to see whether they have hepatitis B, under a new directive from the Department of Health.

Those found to have the virus will be asked to have their children immunized within 24 hours of birth. (See WDDTY Vol 3 No 4 about side effects of the hepatitis B vaccine.) The vaccine for babies, called Engerix B, will be available in the UK from the 20 July.
