Hepatitis B is a highly infectious virus that leads to inflammation of the liver. It is contracted by coming into contact with blood or bodily fluids from an infected person, whether through sharing needles, a blood transfusion or working as a healthcare professional. It is also contracted through unprotected sexual intercourse with someone who has the virus. Being careful about not coming into contact with the virus is the best form of prevention, but vaccination is highly effective.
