Core Tip This is a retrospective study evaluating clinical factors associated with Hepatitis B virus (HBV) screening and vaccination in high-risk adults. Among the 999 high-risk adults included in this study, 556 (55.7%) adults were screened for HBV. Of those who were screened, only 242 (43.5%) adults were vaccinated against HBV. Clinical factors such as End Stage Renal Disease, and cirrhosis were associated with HBV screening, while diabetes mellitus (DM) was not. Patients with DM were less likely to undergo HBV vaccination. HBV vaccination is highly effective in preventing HBV-related liver disease and its sequelae. Increasing HBV vaccination in all high-risk adults should be strongly encouraged by all healthcare systems.
