    The Committee of Vice Chancellors and Principles have stated that from 1996, all students entering medical or dental school must show evidence of non-infectivity and satisfactory completion of immunisation against hepatitis B. This is believed to be the first time that immunisation status has been part of a requirement for admission to university. The problems associated with such a programme are discussed, not the least of which is the setting of a precedent that if followed to its logical conclusion, will eventually see screening for other viral infections such as HCV and HIV, but so it seems, only when we have a vaccine.
