What is Hepatitis B?
Hepatitis B is a viral infection that causes serious liver disease. Spread through blood and other bodily fluids, symptoms include a high temperature, yellowing of the skin (jaundice), stomach pains, diarrhoea and a loss of appetite. The best way to help protect against Hepatitis B is to complete a vaccination course and stay up-to-date with any boosters and additional doses.
How can we help protect your employees against Hepatitis B?
Anyone working in healthcare, laboratories, care homes, waste disposal, police, fire or rescue services as well as prison and immigration centres, are at an increased risk of contracting Hepatitis B. The Hepatitis B vaccination is a course of three injections over six months which helps protect against the virus.
An accelerated course is also available given over two months with a fourth dose at 12 months if required.

Is a blood test needed after the vaccination?
When the vaccination course is complete, an immunity blood test is needed to check whether you or your employees are now protected against the virus. This blood test should be taken one to four months after the last vaccination. Depending on the result, another dose of the vaccine may be required. Medichecks have a number of immunity testing options from at-home testing kits to on-site phlebotomy clinics. You can order a home blood testing kit or arrange for an onsite visit by emailing email@example.com.
If you order a finger prick test kit, your employees can provide a blood sample in the comfort of their own home and send this off in the post. A doctor’s report is included with the test which you can opt out of, if it isn’t needed. The results are available to the employee via an online portal within two to three days of the sample arriving at the laboratory. Employees can download a PDF of their results to share with their employer if required.
