HEPATITIS A/B COMBINED TRAVEL VACCINE
Hepatitis A/B Combined Travel Vaccination Services at Miles Pharmacy
Hepatitis A and hepatitis B are viruses that attack the liver and affect how it functions. The best way to prevent hepatitis A and hepatitis B is to get the combined vaccination at Miles Pharmacy prior to travel.
The combination vaccine can prevent both HAV and HBV infection with only one injection, providing lifetime immunity.
We offer the Hepatitis A/B Combined Travel Vaccine at an affordable cost.
This vaccine is recommended for people who are at risk of being exposed to Hepatitis A & B.
This includes people who:
- Will be travelling to areas with a high-risk of HAV and HBV cases. These include Africa, the Caribbean, Central America, South America, Mexico, Asia, the Middle East, Eastern Europe, Southern Europe, and the former Soviet Union.
- Have long-term (chronic) liver disease.
- Use illegal drugs through injection.
- Have unprotected sex with multiple partners.
- Work in professions that expose them to viruses, such as some lab workers, healthcare providers, and daycare providers.

What is Hepatitis A?
Hepatitis A is an extremely contagious (yet mild) liver infection that is caused by the hepatitis A virus. The majority of infections occur in travellers who have visited high-risk countries (see above). The virus typically spreads through contaminated food, water, and poor hygiene. The good news is that hepatitis A is not a chronic condition, it is temporary. Protect yourself from HBA and get the Hepatitis A & B Combined travel vaccine before your trip.
What is Hepatitis B?
Hepatitis B is a serious liver infection. It is transmitted through body fluids and blood that is spread through unprotected sex, contaminated needles, or poor dental/medical hygiene practices. Symptoms of HBV may not start until after a 90-day incubation period. Because of the long timeframe, travellers often return home without knowing that they were infected.
At the Miles Pharmacy Travel Clinic, we offer the hepatitis A & B combined travel vaccination and others, safeguarding the health of the whole family so that you can enjoy your trip – worry free!
