Twinrix vaccine against Hepatitis A and B

The Twinrix vaccine against Hepatitis A and B is available at the Travel Vaccine Clinic

You can contract the hepatitis A virus by ingesting food or drinks that have been contaminated by human waste. That means, you could be exposed by:

  • Eating food handled by an infected worker who did not wash his/her hands properly after using the washroom
  • Eating raw or undercooked seafood and shellfish from sewage-polluted water
  • Eating produce (e.g. salad) that has been rinsed in contaminated water
  • Ingesting contaminated water while swimming or bathing

You can contract hepatitis B by coming into contact with the bodily fluids (e.g. blood, semen, vaginal fluid or saliva) of an infected person. That means, you could be exposed by:

  • Getting a manicure, pedicure, tattoo, piercing or acupuncture with improperly sterilized tools
  • Having sexual contact with an infected partner
  • Giving first aid to, or receiving it from, an infected person
  • Having a medical or dental procedure with contaminated equipment
  • Sharing personal grooming items (e.g. nail clippers) with an infected person
