"RECOMMENDATIONS FOR PREVENTION AND CONTROL OF HEPATITIS C VIRUS (HCV) INFECTION AND HCV-RELATED CHRONIC DISEASE"  MORBIDITY AND MORTALITY WEEKLY REPORT  47(RR-19): OCTOBER 16, 1998.

Important Points:
This is the first comprehensive report on HCV.  As recent as 1996, 40% of new HCV cases could not be explained.  This report clarifies that HCV is more closely following the HBV model and no recognized source of infection can be identified in about 10% of the cases.
60% of cases are associated with injecting-drug use.
20% or less report sexual exposures absent percutaneous risk factors.
10% are associated with occupational, hemodialysis and/or perinatal exposures.

Recommendations of the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) and the Hospital Infection Control Practices Advisory Committee (HICPAC)"   MORBIDITY AND MORTALITY WEEKLY REPORT 46(RR-18): DECEMBER 26, 1997.

Important Points: 
Workers should be titer tested 1-2 months after the HBV vaccination series and receive additional vaccine if found negative (see p. 23). Upon completion fo the vaccination series, booster doses are NOT recommended (see p. 23).
