Where are Hepatitis B destinations?

Hepatitis B is more common in certain areas with higher rates of transmission. Regions with intermediate to high prevalence include parts of Africa, Southeast Asia, the Western Pacific, and Eastern Europe. However, the virus can be found in all parts of the world.  

How is Hepatitis B transmitted?

Hepatitis B can be contracted through exposure to infected blood or bodily fluids through activities such as unprotected sexual intercourse, sharing of needles, or from an infected person to a non-infected person through breaks in the skin or mucous membranes, or from an infected mother to her baby during childbirth. 

How contagious is Hepatitis B?

Hepatitis B is highly contagious, as it can be transmitted through contact with the blood or other body fluids of an infected person. The virus can survive outside the body for at least seven days. 

Hugging, kissing, or sharing food or utensils, does not typically lead to hepatitis B transmission. However, the virus is highly contagious in situations where there is direct contact with infected blood or bodily fluids. 

Vaccination is a highly effective way to prevent hepatitis B infection and reduce its transmission. Practicing safe sex, avoiding sharing needles or personal items that may have come into contact with blood, and taking precautions in healthcare settings are essential measures to reduce the risk of transmission.  

If you suspect you have been exposed to Hepatitis B, you must consult with a healthcare professional as soon as possible.  

How can I protect myself against Hepatitis B?

If you are planning to travel to areas with higher prevalence, it’s essential to take precautions to reduce the risk of hepatitis B transmission. This includes getting vaccinated against Hepatitis B, practicing safe sex, avoiding sharing needles or personal items that may be contaminated with blood, and taking general hygiene precautions. 

What are the symptoms of Hepatitis B?

The symptoms of acute hepatitis B can include fever, fatigue, loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, dark urine, and jaundice (yellowing of the skin and eyes). However, many people with acute Hepatitis B do not have symptoms, and the infection may resolve on its own without causing long-term liver damage.

I visited today for travel vaccines. I had no idea about the whole process as this is my first time. I rang Smarta Healthcare and a lovely lady was very informative and friendly and answered all my questions. I brought my 4 year old with me and the Pharmacist was so friendly and patient and didn’t pressurise me at all (I was worried about not taking all the vaccines as money is tight) but she helped me to make my decisions without judging. My daughter did so well with the injection and I think the lovely calm environment and staff played a big factor in this. Thanks so much
