More About
Hepatitis B

Symptoms of hepatitis B may include fever, fatigue, loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, dark urine, clay-coloured bowel movements, joint pain, and jaundice (yellowing of the skin and eyes). Some people with hepatitis B do not have any symptoms, while others may experience severe symptoms.

There is no specific treatment for hepatitis B, but antiviral medications can help to manage the symptoms and reduce the risk of complications. It is important to get vaccinated against hepatitis B to prevent the infection. The hepatitis B vaccine is safe and effective, and is recommended for all new-borns, children, and adults who are not already immune to the virus.
If you think you may have been exposed to hepatitis B, or if you have symptoms of the infection, it is important to see a healthcare provider for testing and treatment. Hepatitis B can be serious and can lead to liver damage, liver cancer, and even death if left untreated.

There are two primary immunisation schedules that can be recommended:

  1. A 0, 1, 6 months schedule which gives optimal protection at month 7 and produces high antibody concentrations.
  2. An accelerated schedule, with immunisation at 0, 1 and 2 months, which will confer protection more quickly and is expected to provide better patient compliance. With this schedule, a fourth dose should be administered at 12 months to assure long term protection as antibody concentrations after the third dose are lower than those obtained after the 0,1, 6 months schedule. In infants this schedule will allow for simultaneous administration of hepatitis B with other childhood vaccines.
