Vaccinate at birth, protect for life
Because we care
PGH is one of the hospitals participating in an important and successful Essential Intrapartum Newborn Care (EINC) program. This program of the Department of Health has conducted observational research and its findings are the basis for emphasizing non-separation of the mother and newborn for bonding and the initiation of breast-feeding as a crucial part of immediate newborn care. The next phase is essential newborn care where hepatitis B vaccination is carefully placed. Having evidence-based information and clear instruction increases the chances that babies will be properly vaccinated.
