Group 1 consists of 25 infants, 18 infants were protected with average of anti-HBs 107.12 mIU/ml. Group 2 consisted of 22 infants, 15 were protected with average of anti-HBs 162.5 mIU/ml. Group 3 consist of 37 infants, 24 infants were protected with average of anti-HBs 85.93 mIU/ml. Kruskal Wallis Analysis result showed no significant difference among the three groups with p=0.322.
