The immunogenicity and tolerability of hepatitis A virus vaccine was evaluated in a group of 32 children with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection and 27 children with seroreversion. After 2 doses of vaccine, 100% of children experienced seroconversion with good toleration of the vaccine. There were no differences in variation of virus load between immunized HIV-positive children and a group of 31 nonimmunized HIV-positive children with similar characteristics.
