Hepatitis B vaccine (HBV)
What is the Hepatitis B vaccine
Hepatitis B is a liver disease that
can lead to the development of cancer later in life. Children are unlikely
to contract it unless they have an infected adult in their household or
they have been exposed to infected blood or other body fluids.
Does immunizing adults also help
Immunizing adults against the disease
has been ineffective. The idea is to vaccinate people when they are still
young children so that they are immune once they become adults.
