Hepatitis B can be a serious threat, and vaccination can prevent it! 🦠💉🔵 Hepatitis B can be transmitted from mother to baby during childbirth. 🔵 Newborns who contract the virus are at high risk for chronic infection. 🔵 Chronic hepatitis B can lead to liver disease, cirrhosis, and even liver cancer.
By vaccinating your baby against hepatitis B, you're giving them a strong shield of protection from the very beginning of life. Talk to your paediatrician or healthcare provider to ensure your little one gets their hepatitis B vaccine.
