Can An Adult Be Given Hepatitis B Vaccination?
, can adults be given hepatitis B vaccination? What is the estimated cost for each vaccination?
Hello Mikael Karistof Kolong, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
The hepatitis B vaccine is basically included in one vaccine recommended by the Association of Internal Medicine Doctors in Indonesia.
This vaccination can be given to adults from the age of 19 years to the age of 65 years and over, and this vaccination is given as many as 3 doses, namely at month 0 (when first injecting), month 1 (one month after the first injection) and also the 6th month (6 months after the first injection). After that, repeat immunization is not necessary if you have received a complete vaccination of 3 doses without being late.
For costs that will be charged each time the injection itself, everything returns to the place where you did the injection because each health facility has a list of prices for different medical procedures. If you have decided you want to do an injection at a health facility, you can ask further directly to the administration of the health facility.
I hope this helps.
