In brief: Those at risk

See cdc website or advisory committee for immunization practices (acip).
Too many specifics to cover here. For hep b which is the most common viral hep, risk groups are those on hemodialysis, high risk sexual behavior, those with chronic liver disease, those with diabetes, household contacts of pt's with hep b, those with chronic liver disease, healthcare workers, and neonates of hep b mothers.

In brief: Everyone

The hepatitis a and b vaccines are very good vaccines, in that they are very safe and provide good protection against a couple of serious liver diseases.
Everyone should get the vaccines as soon as they are eligible, which is at birth for hepb vaccine and at about 18 months for hepa vaccine.
