Recombivax HB Vaccine Information

Recombivax HB® (hepatitis B vaccine) is a vaccine that protects against hepatitis B. It is typically given as a series of two or three injections, depending on your age and other factors. The vaccine works by "tricking" the body into thinking it has been exposed to the hepatitis B virus. Because the product is not a "live" vaccine, there is absolutely no chance of getting the disease from your vaccination.
 
Side effects of this vaccine are typically mild. In fact, most people do not experience any problems after getting vaccinated. In clinical studies, the most common side effects reported with Recombivax HB included reactions at the injection site, irritability, fatigue, and fever.
 
Due to a hepatitis B vaccine shortage, the adult formulations of this product are not expected to be available until 2010. Fortunately, other vaccines are available if you need to get inoculated against hepatitis B before then.
