In the JAMA Clinical Guidelines Synopsis entitled “Screening for Gonorrhea, Chlamydia, and Hepatitis B,” published in the March 22/29, 2016, issue of JAMA,1 the Major Recommendations section of the box on page 1278 contained incorrect wording. The first sentence under the hepatitis B recommendations should have read “All individuals at high risk of hepatitis B infection should be screened with hepatitis B surface antigen, surface antibody, and core antibody.” This article was corrected online.
