Hepatitis B vaccination

Hepatitis B vaccination

What's hepatitis B?

Hepatitis B is an inflammation of the liver caused by the hepatitis B virus. Hepatitis B is one of the most common infectious diseases worldwide. The virus is highly contagious and is transmitted from person to person through blood, body fluids, sexual contact and blood substitutes. Many hepatitis B virus infections are asymptomatic or cause only mild symptoms and are therefore often not detected in adults. In 10% of those infected, there are serious consequences of chronic infection, such as liver cirrhosis ("scarring" of the liver) and hepatocellular carcinoma (liver cancer).

Who should be vaccinated?

If you are planning a trip to North America, Australia, Central Africa or Southeast Asia, you should get vaccinated, as the frequency of chronically infected people is highest here. This is especially true if there are risk factors, such as close contact with the local population, possible sexual contact, travel abroad for medical procedures (e.g. dental treatment, cosmetic surgery), dialysis treatment while traveling, a long-term stay in countries with limited medical care, tattoos, piercings or even an occupational risk.

How and when is the vaccination carried out and what must be observed?

The hepatitis B vaccine is an inactivated vaccine and is often administered in combination with hepatitis A.
Basic immunisation consists of three vaccinations within 6 months. There is no complete protection until after the third vaccination. If you are in a hurry due to a spontaneous trip, there is also a rapid vaccination schedule.
According to the STIKO, routine booster vaccinations against hepatitis B are not provided. A booster vaccination is only recommended in case of special risk.

In general, the vaccination is very well tolerated. However, 10% of those vaccinated experience short-term disturbances in their general condition, such as headaches or fatigue.

What should I do?

To find out which vaccinations are appropriate for your planned trip, simply make an appointment for a travel medicine consultation at one of our Avi Medical practices and talk to our medical team. They'll tell you what to look out for to ensure you're safe and relaxed on your next trip.
