Is The Hepatitis B Vaccine Given Once In A Lifetime?
I want to ask if someone has been vaccinated against hepatitis B … then blood contact occurs whether the person is immune to the hepatitis B virus … And the hepatitis B vaccine is given once in a lifetime or once a year huh … ?? Why lately many adults get hepatitis B … has the vaccine faded or the vaccine has run out
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically a person who has received a Hepatitis B vaccine can still be infected with Hepatitis B, therefore in addition to vaccinating, everyone is still advised to avoid risky behavior. The risk of developing hepatitis B in people who get vaccinated is still smaller than people who don't get vaccinated, and the possibility of chronic hepatitis B in people who get vaccinated is also smaller than people who don't get vaccinated.
If someone already gets the complete hepatitis B vaccine as a child, then the vaccination does not need to be repeated. Vaccinations need to be repeated (carried out booster) only in certain conditions, for example people who undergo hemodialysis, people who have sexual partners who suffer from hepatitis B and people who live at home with people with hepatitis B, people who have many sexual partners, people who have other sexually transmitted infections, homosexual men, people who use needles together, people whose jobs are exposed to hepatitis sufferers (such as health workers, laboratory workers, etc.). victims of sexual violence, etc.
To avoid hepatitis B infection, everyone is still advised to avoid risky behavior:
avoid having sex change partners at least use a condom during sexual intercourse if sexual intercourse is unavoidable avoid using syringes together with other people be careful when doing tattoos or piercings The following articles about hepatitis B you can read
