On April 4, 2022, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) published a Federal Register Notice (FRN) #CDC-2022-07050 to obtain comment on proposed hepatitis B screening and testing recommendations. The recommendations supplement CDC’s 2008 screening recommendations by including hepatitis B screening at least once in a lifetime for adults aged 18 years and older, using a three-test panel. Screening with three tests can help identify persons who have a current HBV infection, have resolved infection and who may be susceptible to reactivation, are susceptible and need vaccination, or are vaccinated.
The Federal Register Notice, docket number CDC-2022-0044, will be open for public comment for 60 days and closes on June 3, 2022.
