Hepatitis Vaccines in Ash vale Pharmacy and Travel Clinic

What is Hepatitis?

Hepatitis is a liver condition primarily caused by viruses, although it can also result from exposure to toxic substances or autoimmune disorders. The progression of hepatitis can lead to fibrosis (scarring), cirrhosis, and, in severe cases, cancer.

There are five recognized types of hepatitis, denoted as A, B, C, D, and E. Hepatitis A and E are often contracted through the consumption of contaminated food or water. Types C and D typically spread through contact with infected body fluids, taken in through avenues other than the mouth or intestines. Hepatitis B is commonly transmitted from mother to baby during childbirth, from an infected family member to a child, or through sexual contact.

Who should have the Hepatitis Vaccine?

If you plan to visit a country where any form of Hepatitis is prevalent or engage in high-risk activities, here’s a brief overview:
  • Hepatitis A: Common in South America, Africa, Russia, and Asia
  • Hepatitis B: Found in Asia, Africa, South America, and the Caribbean
  • Hepatitis C: No vaccine available; transmission occurs through contact with an infected person’s blood
  • Hepatitis D: A secondary infection to Hepatitis B, with no specific vaccine; protection against Hepatitis B also guards against Hepatitis D
  • Hepatitis E: No vaccine is currently available outside of China for this type of Hepatitis.

Vaccine Effectiveness

According to the World Health Organisation, the Hepatitis A vaccine is between 98% and 100% effective against the virus. The Hepatitis B vaccine is between 94% and 100% effective.
