Birth Dose Hepatitis B: Protection from Day One
A proven safe and effective way to ensure a healthy start.
Given before a baby leaves the hospital after delivery, the hepatitis B birth dose shot is a single injection followed by 2 more doses. The vaccine can protect infants from liver disease and other life-threatening illnesses caused by the hepatitis B virus.
It is important to discuss the birth dose hepatitis B vaccine with all expectant mothers before they deliver, so they can make an informed and timely decision after the baby's arrival. The hepatitis B vaccine has been given to more than 50 million infants and has been proven safe and effective.
Get Informed about Adolescent and Teen Immunizations
Help your youngsters understand the importance of vaccines.
Vaccines are not just for babies. Adolescents are more social and more at risk to catch certain diseases. Also, the protection from the immunizations they received in early childhood can diminish over time, so an additional dose or booster is needed.
By giving recommended vaccines in the adolescent years, they are protected when most at risk. Talk to your adolescent patients about the vaccines that are appropriate for them.
