Indication(s)

Ambirix is indicated in non-immune children and adolescents from 1 year up to and including 15 years of age for protection against hepatitis A and hepatitis B infection.

Protection against hepatitis B infections may not be obtained until after the second dose.
Therefore:
- Ambirix should be used only when there is a relatively low risk of hepatitis B infection during the vaccination course.
- It is recommended that Ambirix should be administered in settings where completion of the two-dose vaccination course can be assured.
