Hepatitis B Awareness Month

Updated: May 18


Hepatitis B is a viral infection that affects the liver. It can be passed from person to person through childbirth (mother to infant) or s

haring of bodily fluids, like through needles or unprotected sex. It is NOT passed through DNA or through the sharing of food and utensils. Hepatitis B can be easily vaccinated against or treated with antiviral medicine, but still 1 in 10 Asian-Americans have Hepatitis B, with 25% of Asian HBV cases ending in total liver failure.


So why are Asians dying even though there is medicine available? It’s because ⅓ of Asians with Hepatitis are completely unaware. Think. Have you ever been tested or vaccinated against Hepatitis B? You could be in that ⅓, and you may have passed that onto your wife, husband, or children.


In May, we will provide free screening and vaccination to end Hepatitis B.


Call us 240-393-5950 for a free screening and vaccination


乙型肝炎是一種病毒感染,會影響肝臟。它可以通過分娩(母親到嬰兒)在人與人之間傳播,或通過針頭或不受保護的性行為來共享體液。它不會通過DNA或通過食物和器皿的共享而傳遞。乙型肝炎很容易接種抗病毒藥物或用抗病毒藥治療,但仍然有十分之一的亞裔美國人患有乙型肝炎,其中25%的亞洲HBV病例以完全肝衰竭而告終。那麼,即使有可用的藥物,為什麼亞洲人仍會死亡呢?這是因為有1/3的亞裔患有肝炎的人完全沒有意識到。思考。您是否曾經接受過乙型肝炎的測試或疫苗接種?您可能在那個⅓中,並且可能已經將其傳遞給了您的妻子,丈夫或孩子。


五月致電我們240-393-5950免費篩查和接種疫苗。
