Hepatitis B & C is known as a silent killer. Most people infected with Hepatitis B or Hepatitis C virus do not know they are infected because they have not been tested. Find out your hepatitis status and learn more about this preventable, treatable disease and how you can change the way it impacts your family and your community.
Hepatitis B can be prevented with vaccinations.
Fortunately, HBV can be prevented with a very safe and effective vaccine. The Hepatitis B vaccine series is usually given as 3 shots during a 6-month period. The entire series is needed for long-term protection. We will provide free HBV vaccination at a later date if needed.
