In its 2007 report The future of the National Immunisation Programme: towards a programme for all age groups the Dutch Health Council carried out a preliminary selection from a large number of candidate vaccines. Further analysis was recommended for a limited number of vaccines, and for vaccination against hepatitis B the Council recommended that the effectiveness and appropriateness of directed hepatitis B vaccination programmes be evaluated and compared with a general vaccination programme. The present advisory report dated 31 March 2009 is the result of this evaluation and comparison. Source: http://www.gezondheidsraad.nl/sites/default/files/200903E.pdf
