Hello Dina Lorensa Audria,

Hepatitis B is a chronic inflammatory disease of the liver caused by hepatitis B virus infection. Transmission of hepatitis B can occur vertically from a mother who is positive for hepatitis B to her baby during labor. Therefore it is highly recommended to check the status of hepatitis B (HBsAg) in every pregnant woman, so that the risk of transmission to the baby is known.

If the mother is HBsAg negative, the baby will be hepatitis B negative. Except for one time, the baby will be infected by another hepatitis B transmission route, for example from a syringe contaminated with hepatitis B virus, an unsafe blood transfusion or when an adult has sexual relations with hepatitis B sufferers and so on.

Every newborn baby weighing> 2000 grams will be given hepatitis B vaccination in the right thigh. If the baby is born to a mother who is hepatitis B positive, the baby needs to be tested for HBsAg, if the HBsAg baby is negative then the baby needs additional hepatitis B immunoglobulin given within the first 12 hours of life as the baby's active protection against hepatitis B, in addition to the hepatitis B vaccine. babies born to mothers who are HBsAg negative do not need to be routinely done.

Recommendations for giving hepatitis B vaccination from IDAI (Indonesian Pediatrician Association) to children are at birth then proceed with one of the following:

 2 months, 3 months, 4 months (for DTPw combination hepatitis B vaccine) 0 months, 1 month, 6 months (monovalent hepatitis B vaccine) 2 months, 4 months, 6 months (DTPa combination hepatitis B vaccine) Thus the explanation from me, hopefully useful.
