The vaccine is a course of three injections, which are given rapidly over a one month course or over a standard six month course.

Countries at risk

Hepatitis B occurs worldwide. Areas where there is a higher risk of exposure to hepatitis B include Eastern Europe, Russia, India, China, South and Central AmericaAfrica, South East Asia and many islands in the South Pacific.

If you are a tourist or short-term traveller, your risk is low. Risk is linked to behaviour – any activity causing contact with blood or body fluids can put you at risk.

Travellers may also be exposed when receiving medical or dental treatment while abroad. Infection can be spread via sexual intercourse, needle sharing, blood transfusions and injections, as well as through tattooing, body piercing and acupuncture.

The hepatitis B vaccine is recommended for individuals at increased risk of exposure to the hepatitis B virus. This includes healthcare workers, travellers to regions with high hepatitis B prevalence, and those with specific lifestyle or medical risk factors.

The immunity provided by the hepatitis B vaccine can last for at least 20 years. Following the initial series of 3 doses, a booster dose may not be necessary for most individuals on a routine basis.

For most individuals, a routine hepatitis B booster is not recommended. However, specific high-risk groups may undergo periodic testing to assess the necessity of a booster dose.
