Hepatitis B is an infection of the liver caused by a virus, spread through contact with bodily fluids. Vaccination is recommended if you are travelling to parts of the world where Hepatitis B is common such as Africa, Asia, the Middle East and parts of Eastern Europe.
Unlike Hepatitis A, the transmission of Hepatitis B can occur during unprotected sex, drug use or playing some contact sports. Medical professionals or anyone who comes into contact with another person’s blood, semen or other bodily fluids will also see a higher risk of contracting a Hepatitis B infection.
We provide vaccinations against this virus at our private clinic in Birmingham.
At our private clinic in Birmingham, our medical professionals can help you get vaccinated against this virus with the Hepatitis B vaccine. For those who have already been vaccinated, we also offer a booster jab to help keep you protected.
The Hepatitis B Vaccine
The vaccine is administered in three doses in your upper arm. The Hepatitis B vaccination is administered in 3 separate doses. These can be spread over a 6-month period, or within 3 weeks if protection is required quickly.
Hepatitis B Boosters
If you have completed a full course of the vaccine, you can receive a booster jab five years later to top up your protection. We normally recommend the hep B booster if you have been exposed to this disease.
Arranging Your Vaccination
Book Your Appointment
Click here to choose the most convenient slot for you.
One of our medical professionals will talk you through the process and offer you guidance on how to stay protected.
Having confirmed which option you need, you will swiftly receive your vaccination jab so you can continue with your day.
When to Get the Hepatitis B vaccine?
It is recommended that you arrange to have the vaccination one month before your trip.
When you book an appointment with one of our GPs, you will be given all the information you need regarding the jab and the precautions to take to minimise the risks of being exposed.
Who Needs The Hepatitis B Vaccine?
People travelling to areas of the world where the disease can be easily contracted are advised to have the vaccine. Some of these places include:
South East Asia
Some South Pacific Islands
We can also provide a combined Hepatitis A + B vaccination for those travelling to high-risk areas. Our GPs at our Birmingham-based clinic can help you work out what may be required before you travel and offer a comprehensive travel consultation. Contact us today to see if your destination is on our list.
The vaccine has been proven to be effective in over 90% of people. Once you have received all three doses of the vaccine, you should be safe against this virus for approximately five years.
The course of injections does this by stimulating your body’s natural immune system to fight off the virus, without you experiencing the symptoms of this disease. If you are already infected, the vaccine is not able to help.
Hepatitis B: What You Need To Know
Hepatitis B is usually transmitted through the exchange of bodily fluids and it is mostly passed during sexual intercourse and through contaminated needles or other medical equipment. For those working within healthcare, getting vaccinated is a must due to their heightened exposure to the bodily fluids of unwell people.
If you contract Hepatitis B, you will notice a range of symptoms similar to the flu. Other symptoms that patients might develop are rashes, loss of appetite, headaches and nausea. Some people can develop jaundice, a yellowing of the eyes and skin. If no action is taken, the virus can develop into chronic Hepatitis B, which can lead to liver damage, cancer and failure.
