Paragraph 31 of the electronic version of this publication has been amended but users of the hard copy should note that this paragraph should read:

"Healthcare workers for whom hepatitis B vaccination is contra-indicated, who decline vaccination or who are non-responders to vaccine should be restricted from performing EPPs unless shown to be non-infectious (see paragraphs 37-40). Periodic re-testing may need to be considered."
