Hi Fendi,

Thanks for asking HealthReplies.com.

Hepatitis is an infection that attacks the liver or liver and causes inflammation of the liver tissue. The type of hepatitis depends on the type of virus that infects. Known hepatitis A, B, C, D and E. However, until now that can and commonly occurs is infection with hepatitis A, B and C.

Hepatitis A is a type of acute infection or occurs suddenly. This type of infection attacks through the presence of food or drink contaminated with the virus so that the symptoms felt are digestive disorders to yellow symptoms.

For chronic hepatitis B and hepatitis C where the course of the disease takes years and has caused symptoms when the course of the disease is at an end stage. In general, infection with this disease is screened by seeing the presence of antibodies formed in the body. If the antibodies formed indicate an acute infection, it is necessary to immediately treat and treat. Unlike the case if the antibodies that show positive then the body already has its own defense to fight this disease.

The hepatitis vaccination that you are referring to is probably a vaccination for hepatitis B. You can see that the amount of antibodies is still lacking, so an immunization is given which triggers the formation of antibodies in the body. Vaccination is an effort to prevent this disease, while the treatment is not from vaccines but anti-virals. Consult in detail with the doctor who will give the vaccination. Starting from the indications to the side effects that may appear when administering the vaccine.

That's all I can say, hopefully useful.
