About Hepatitis A & B

Hepatitis A is a disease that causes the infected individual’s liver to become inflamed, thereby exhibiting flu-like symptoms, such as vomiting, nausea, low fever, and more. It is present in infected people’s feces and can be transmitted through contaminated food or water. Hepatitis B is similar to Hepatitis A in that it also harms the liver. However, the former is usually passed on from person to person via semen, blood, or other bodily fluids, rather than feces. The Hepatitis vaccine works to prevent these diseases, but it can occasionally present serious side effects in certain individuals.

Potential side effects of the Hepatitis vaccine include:

  • Jaundice

  • Joint pain

  • Tiredness

  • Headache

  • Dark urine

  • Loss of appetite

  • Abdominal pain

  • Nausea and vomiting

  • Soreness at the injection site

  • Anaphylaxis, anaphylactic shock

  • Life-threatening allergic reaction

  • Fever

  • Increased heart rate

Who Should Not Receive the Hepatitis B Vaccine

Not everyone should receive the Hepatitis B vaccine. Individuals with severe yeast allergies should not receive the vaccine, nor should anyone who is already ill. Anyone who is suffering from a severe acute illness should postpone being vaccinated until their condition has improved. Finally, anyone who has previously experienced an adverse reaction to the Hepatitis B vaccine should not receive another dose.

Hepatitis Vaccine Injuries and Compensation

If you or a loved one has suffered an adverse reaction, illness, or injury after receiving the Hepatitis vaccine, you may be entitled to compensation under the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP), a federal trust fund created specifically for resolving vaccine injury cases. Established as a no-fault alternative to the traditional legal system, the NVICP allows individuals of any age who believe they may have been harmed by a covered vaccine to file a claim.

Injured individuals can recover compensation for:

  • Present and future medical costs

  • Lost wages and other income

  • Lost earning potential

  • Disability benefits

  • And more
