This pamphlet discusses the hepatitis B virus (HBV), who is most likely to get it, and the vaccine that prevents it. The pamphlet provides a brief epidemiological overview of HBV, explains how this virus is transmitted, and which groups of people are most likely to contract it. Because children are particularly vulnerable to hepatitis B, the pamphlet emphasizes that infants should be vaccinated according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the American Academy of Pediatrics. It describes the role of the Hepatitis B Foundation in HBV prevention and what an individual can do to support the organization.
