HEPATITIS B VACCINE

Hepatitis B Vaccine at Fleet Street Clinic London

If you’re looking for a Hepatitis B Vaccine in London, Fleet Street Clinic can help.

WHAT IS HEPATITIS B?

  • Hepatitis B is a viral infection spread by contaminated blood and bodily fluids. 350 million people world wide are carriers of the Hepatitis B virus.
  • The highest risk countries for Hepatitis B infection are central, western and southern Africa and south-east Asia.
  • Chronic infection with Hepatitis B can cause liver disease and liver cancer.

HEPATITIS B IS CONTRACTED THROUGH CONTACT WITH INFECTED BLOOD OR BODILY FLUIDS. THIS CAN INCLUDE:-

  • Mother to baby transmission at the time of birth
  • Unprotected sexual intercourse
  • Through contaminated blood products (such as unscreened blood transfusion)
  • Contaminated medical equipment (such as needles and syringes)
  • Contaminated tattoo or body piercing equipment
  • Through contaminated needles and syringes from injecting drug use

VACCINATION AGAINST HEPATITIS B IS ADVISED FOR:

  • Those who are at occupational risk (such as health care workers, aid workers where their job puts them at risk of injury)
  • Travellers who visit high-risk areas, those who travel frequently or for longer periods
  • Travellers who have pre-existing conditions
  • Travellers who carry out activities associated with risk (adventure sports, body piercing, tattoos)
  • Those who participate in lifestyle behaviours that may increase the risk (such as, unprotected sex and injecting drug use)

A Hepatitis B vaccine is available and can be given from birth. It requires a primary course of 3 vaccinations to be given over a 6 month period (0, 1 months, 6 months) with a booster dose given 5 years later. Those who require the vaccinations to be given more quickly, such as last-minute travellers, can receive the primary course over a shortened 3 week period. Hepatitis B can also be given in combination with Hepatitis A when protection against both diseases is required. TwinRix is available for both adults and children, and adheres to the vaccination schedule outlined above. Ambirix is licenced for children under the age of 15 years and requires 2 doses 6 months apart.
