Learn More about Hepatitis B



What is hepatitis B?

Hepatitis B is a liver infection that is spread through contact with blood or other bodily fluids. It is most commonly spread through sexual contact, shared drug needles, from an infected mother to her child in the womb, or direct contact with the blood of an infected person. Some cases of hepatitis B are acute (short term) and do not require medical treatment. However, some people may develop chronic hepatitis B which may require lifelong treatment.

According to the CDC, there were 3,218 reported cases of acute hepatitis B in the United States in 2016. However, given that symptoms are not always present, the CDC estimates that total number of acute hepatitis B cases in that year to be closer to 20,900. The number of people in the United States with chronic hepatitis is estimated to be 850,000, but the CDC believes this number may actually be as high as 2.2 million.



Who is at risk for hepatitis B?

Anyone can contract hepatitis B. However, certain groups are at greater risk. According to the CDC, the following groups are at highest risk for contracting hepatitis B:

  • Infants born to infected mothers

  • People who inject drugs or share needles

  • Sexual partners of people infected with hepatitis B

  • Men who have sex with men

  • People living in close proximity to a person with hepatitis B

  • Health care workers or others exposed to blood in their work environments

  • Hemodialysis patients


What are the symptoms of hepatitis B?

Not all individuals infected with acute hepatitis B will experience symptoms. In fact, the CDC estimates that only about 30-50% of infected people age 5 and older will have symptoms. When symptoms are present, they will develop about 3 months after exposure and will include the following:

  • Fever

  • Fatigue

  • Loss of appetite

  • Nausea

  • Vomiting

  • Abdominal pain

  • Dark urine

  • Clay-colored bowel movements

  • Joint pain

  • Jaundice

Individuals with chronic hepatitis B will generally not have any symptoms. When symptoms are present, they are generally very similar to the symptoms of acute hepatitis B. Given the serious nature of hepatitis B and the effects it can have on your liver and overall health, it is important to talk to your doctor about hepatitis B if you believe you may have been exposed to the disease.



Hepatitis B Vaccination

A vaccination to protect against hepatitis B is available. The vaccine consists of between 2-4 shots that are given over a period of 1 to 6 months. Currently the hepatitis B vaccine is recommended for infants, children and adolescents under the age of 19, and for unvaccinated adults who are at risk for hepatitis B.

For information or obtaining this immunization in Arizona, please visit the Arizona Department of Health Services website.



What is a hepatitis b immune status screening?
