Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)


Q: What is the difference between a Hepatitis A vaccine and an Immunoglobulin for Hepatitis A?

A: The hepatitis A vaccination induces the immune system to develop antibodies against the hepatitis A virus (HAV), providing long-term protection. Hepatitis A immunoglobulin, on the other hand, contains antibodies that act against HAV and is administered when rapid protection against the virus is required.

Q: Is the Avaxim 80mg injection safe?

A: Avaxim 80mg injection is safe and well-tolerated. Before being approved by the health authorities, the injections were extensively tested. Avaxim 80mg injection is still being monitored for safety. Avaxim 80mg injection has mild to moderate side effects, including swelling and redness at the injection site.

Q: I've been infected with hepatitis A. So, what should I do now?

A: If you suspect you've been exposed to hepatitis A, see your health care expert right away. If you've recently been exposed to the hepatitis A virus and haven't been vaccinated, you might benefit from a hepatitis A vaccination or immune globulin injection. The vaccine or immune globulin, on the other hand, is only effective if given within the first two weeks of exposure.
