ACP does not support NQF 0399: “Hepatitis C: Hepatitis A Vaccination” because it does not align with the relevant ACIP clinical guideline. The guideline states, “Available data do not indicate a need for routine [Hepatitis A] vaccination of persons with chronic HBV or HCV infections without evidence of chronic liver disease,” but the performance measure calls for the vaccination of all persons diagnosed with Hepatitis C.
