ABSTRACT

Background: Hepatitis B virus remains a public health dilemma with a high mortality rate worldwide. Health care providers and health students have garter risk of catching the infection as they are close to infected individuals and their bodily fluids. Consequently, we aimed to estimate the awareness, knowledge, and compliance with the vaccine among health-related students in Makkah, Saudi Arabia.
