  Purpose
The present study is conducted in order to assess the acceptability of Hepatitis B vaccination in French general population before and after reimbursement of the paediatric vaccine InfanrixHexa. Four measurements are planned, first before reimbursement and the others at year 1, 2 and 3 after reimbursement.

Condition Intervention
Hepatitis B Other: Data collection

Study Type: Observational
Study Design: Observational Model: Family-Based
Time Perspective: Cross-Sectional

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Proportion of infants receiving Hepatitis B vaccination. [ Time Frame: 4 years ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Evaluation of the immunization coverage levels by other vaccines. [ Time Frame: 4 years ]
    The vaccination coverage by other vaccines will be described for each time point (i.e. at the initial time point, and at the years 1, 2 and 3 time points).

  • Acceptability of vaccinating against Hepatitis B. [ Time Frame: 4 Years ]
    Acceptability of vaccinating against hepatitis B will be evaluated via assessment of the variation of this acceptability amongst parents categorised as "accepting", using their responses to a semi-qualitative questionnaire about vaccination.

Groups/Cohorts Assigned Interventions
Cohort A
Children aged 12-15 months at the time of the study. Measurements of Hepatitis B vaccination cover prior to InfanrixHexa reimbursement was obtained from this cohort.
Other: Data collection
Poll and questionnaire-based methodology completed by face-to-face interviews, with possible additional follow-up offered to households.
Cohort B
Children aged 24-27 months at the time of the study. Measurements of Hepatitis B vaccination cover prior to InfanrixHexa reimbursement was obtained from this cohort.
Other: Data collection
Poll and questionnaire-based methodology completed by face-to-face interviews, with possible additional follow-up offered to households.

Detailed Description:
The present study aims to evaluate the changes in Hepatitis B immunization coverage and the acceptability thereof among parents, in the general population. This is a national, prospective, epidemiological study, comprising four measurement time-points over a three-year period, (T1 in 2009, T2 in 2010, T3 in 2011, and T4 in 2012) in order to cover the period prior to the introduction of InfanrixHexa® reimbursement, the transition period, and the period following reimbursement of the vaccine. The periods between each data collection time-point will be identical, lasting a year. Two age groups will be investigated at each data collection time-point: 12-15 months and 24-27 months, thus providing measurements before/after reimbursement.
