Hepatitis B Vaccination (Paediatric)

(per dose)
Hepatitis B is a viral liver infection that can lead to liver damage. Unlike hepatitis A, it's primarily transmitted through bodily fluids like blood or contaminated needles rather than contaminated water. To complete the full course of three injections in time, the first dose should be administered at least one month before travel.
