Teens Susceptible to Hepatitis B Infection Despite Vaccination as Infants

Hepatitis B Shot

Story at-a-glance -

  • If you are opposed to the hepatitis B vaccine for your baby at birth, you can amend the "consent for medical treatment" forms you sign upon entering the hospital before giving birth by writing on the form that you do not give consent for your baby's hepatitis B vaccination but, unfortunately, that is no guarantee that your baby will not be vaccinated in the newborn nursery without your knowledge or consent
  • By the age of 15, about 15 percent of teens who received the full series of hepatitis B shots as infants tested positive for hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg), which is an early indicator of infection or a sign that the person is a chronic carrier of the virus
  • In other words, it appears that the hepatitis B vaccine, when given as an infant, does NOT provide lasting protection, and many children have lost their immunity by the age of 15
  • Hepatitis B is a primarily blood-transmitted adult disease associated with risky lifestyle choices such as unprotected sex with multiple partners and intravenous drug use involving sharing needles—it is NOT primarily a "children's disease" or one that is a common threat to newborn babies
  • At least 60 brain and immune system disorders or adverse effects are associated with hepatitis B vaccination

By Dr. Mercola

By the time your newborn is 12 hours old, federal health officials recommend administering the first dose of hepatitis B vaccine. TWELVE HOURS! If you want to avoid it, you must make it VERY clear to all hospital staff well before the delivery and monitor your baby closely until you leave the hospital.
