Hepatitis A vaccines are produced in tissue culture and purified and inactivated with formalin; 2 vaccines have been licensed for use in the US since These vaccines are highly immunogenic and are >95% effective in preventing HAV infection when given as a 2-dose series to children or adults. , Hepatitis A vaccine also can provide. Existing hepatitis B vaccines are highly effective, and there is no evidence that new vaccines will be needed to eliminate HBV transmission with recommended immunization strategies. Potential uses for new hepatitis B vaccines include enhancing seroprotection in nonresponders to existing vaccines (using preS1 and/or pre-S2, or newer adjuvants), , – decreasing the number of doses.
Hepatitis B vaccine is given to all babies as part of the 6 in 1 vaccine that is given at 2, 4 and 6 months of age. Vaccination is also recommended for people at risk of infection. This includes.

People acutely infected with hepatitis B virus (HBV) may be asymptomatic or symptomatic. The likelihood of developing symptoms of acute hepatitis is age dependent: less than 1% of infants younger than 1 year, 5% to 15% of children 1 through 5 years of age, and 30% to 50% of people older than 5 years are symptomatic, although few data are available for adults older than 30 years.
