Who can get the Vaccine?
- Kids usually get the hepatitis B vaccine (HepB) as a series of 3 shots:
- shortly after birth
- at 1–2 months of age
- at 6–18 months of age
Some children may need to get vaccinated again later in life. These include children:
- whose mothers carry the hepatitis B virus in their blood
- who need hemodialysis
- who have a weak immune system
The hepatitis B vaccine is also recommended for adults living with diabetes and those at high risk for infection due to their jobs, lifestyle, living situations, or country of birth.
The hepatitis B vaccine is also known as the first “anti-cancer” vaccine because it prevents hepatitis B, the leading cause of liver cancer worldwide.
It takes only a few shots to protect yourself and your loved ones against hepatitis B for a lifetime.
