Hepatitis B or HBV, is a virus that can be contracted through contact with blood and bodily fluids. In a health care setting, exposure is always possible but your risk can be greatly reduced by following universal precautions and getting vaccinated. The vaccination consists of three (3) part series. After the initial injection is given, the other two are given over following six month period. In order to be fully vaccinated, you must receive all three injections. If you have questions about whether or not you should receive the vaccination, please contact your personal physician. This vaccination is offered at not cost to you in accordance with the regulations set forth by OSHA. NOTE: If you have already had this vaccination, there is no reason for you to get it again.
