Re: Hep A/B

Vaccinations are very important methods of preventing illness. This is especially true for people who are at high risk for contracting certain illnesses. If you are exposed to blood or body fluids through work or play, you should seriously consider getting the Hep B vaccine. As with any medication, there are some risks associated with vaccines. However, life is full of risks, and you have to weigh the benefits against the risks. If you want to drive to the store, you weigh the risks (getting into a car accident, getting mugged, etc.) with the benefits, and most of the population seems to agree that the benefits far outweigh the risks. So it's a personal choice regarding what the benefits of vaccination are versus the risks. The small risks of vaccination are known and available to you if you are considering vaccination, and it is up to you to decide if you want to accept those risks in order to reap the benefits. Your doctor or nurse should be happy to discuss any concerns you have regarding the risks of the vaccine, along with your risks for contracting the diseases.

People are obviously uneducated on this subject.There is nothing so harmful in receiving a vaccination that you cant have it done.Contracting the disease is worse than getting a vaccination.Is it worth the risk? I myself have had both A&B vaccinations w/ NO side effects whatsoever.I think ppl may be a little too paranoid about this.

Ok, I have read and accepted all your thoughts and beliefs on this. And that is fine.
As for me, I am a very educated person, now. I HAVE done the research on vaccines, AND am living proof as to why vaccinations should not be given.

My child hood vaccinations played a HUGE role in the disease I am fighting now at age 30.

If you want both the Hep A & B you can get the TWINRIX vaccine that has both. It's given in three injections just as the Hep B alone would be. I got the vaccination two years ago and never had a problem of any kind nor have I experienced any side effects from any vaccination, including the tetanus-diptheria boosters. There are a minute percentage of people who do suffer side effects to the vaccination but it could be they are predisposed geneticly or have some other underlying condition that the vaccination affects.
