Adult Vaccination and Testing Program
Adult Hepatitis Vaccination & Testing Program
All 67 county health departments in the state of Florida receive hepatitis A and B vaccines from the Florida Hepatitis Prevention Program free of charge. Vaccines are available to adults at increased risk for viral hepatitis at no charge.
The Florida Hepatitis Prevention Program also provides funding to fifteen counties (Alachua, Bay, Broward, Collier, Duval, Escambia, Lee, Miami-Dade, Monroe, Okeechobee, Orange, Palm Beach, Pinellas, Polk and Seminole) for the provision of hepatitis services to residents at increased risk for hepatitis A, B and/or C. Components of these services may include: a) screening and testing for chronic hepatitis B and C; b) immunization against hepatitis A and B; c) targeted interventions; d) epidemiologic investigations; e) education of the public and health care providers; f) enhanced surveillance. Counties are funded at varying levels and services may vary from county to county depending on funding.
