Hepatitis B (HBV) Vaccines Near You

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.

How Midland Health Can Help

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.

  • China
  • Africa

  • Some South Pacific Islands

We can also provide a combined Hepatitis A + B vaccination for those travelling to high-risk areas.

How Effective Is This Vaccine

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.

Once Hepatitis B has been contracted, it can take anywhere from 40 to 160 days until you notice the first symptoms. And, even then, it is often symptomless. The World Health Organisation (WHO) reported that 296 million people were battling chronic Hepatitis B in 2019, with approximately 1.5 million people becoming newly infected each year.

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.

Who can have the Hep B vaccination?

Anyone, of any age, can have this vaccine. We especially recommend it to those travelling to high-risk countries or those who work in the medical profession.

Is there any age restriction with this vaccine?

No, the Hepatitis B vaccine can be administered from birth.

How can Hep B be prevented?

The best way to protect yourself against Hep B is by getting yourself vaccinated.

In addition to this, as the virus is transmitted through bodily fluids, you can reduce your risk by using condoms during sexual intercourse. Similarly, frequenting tattoo and body piercing parlours, dentists or medical practices that do not sterilise their equipment will also put you at risk.

Are there any side effects to the vaccine injection?

Some patients might experience soreness and minimal swelling around the area where the jab has been administered. Other side effects include feeling tired.
