Hepatitus B Vaccine
Were you looking for information about the Hepatitis B Vaccine? Hepatitus B vaccine is a common misspelling of hepatitis B vaccine.
The hepatitis B vaccine can protect a person against hepatitis B for at least 23 years. People who should get the hepatitis B vaccine include healthcare workers, international travelers, and people with a chronic liver disease, among others.
There are also some people who should not get the vaccine, including those who have had a severe (life-threatening) allergic reaction to a previous dose of hepatitis B vaccine and those who have had a severe allergic reaction to any vaccine component or to baker's yeast (the kind used to make bread). Before receiving the vaccine, let your healthcare provider know if you have any severe allergies.
