Hepatitis B Travel Vaccination
Hepatitis B Travel Vaccination affects up to 10
of people in SE Asia, sub-Saharan Africa and
South America. This viral disease is incurable
and can lead to liver cirrhosis and liver
cancer. Vaccination is the most effective way to
reduce the risk of acquiring this
infection. Accidents abroad are more common than
you might think. Sterile medical kits are
available at TravelDoc free of charge.

Yellowing of your skin and the whites of your
eyes (jaundice) Hepatitis B Vaccination This
vaccination is given as a course of three
vaccines over 6 months, however it can be given
in an accelerated manner for those requiring more
expeditious cover. In this case it can be given
on days 0,7 and 21, with a booster dose after one
year. The vaccine is not live and is therefore
well tolerated. A junior vaccine is available to
children. For those that need to prove immunity
against Hepatitis B, an antibody blood test can
be arranged from six to eight weeks after the
last dose is given. This will show whether cover
is adequate or whether a further booster is
required.
