Hep B vaccine protects against hepatitis B
Your baby should get Hep B shot because to:
- Protect your child from against hepatitis B, a potentially serious disease.
- Protect other people from the disease because children with hepatitis B usually don’t have symptoms, but they may pass the disease to others without anyone knowing they were infected.
- Prevent your child from developing liver disease and cancer from hepatitis B.
- Keep your child from missing school or child care and you from missing work.
