About the hepatitis B vaccine booster

  • Getting the vaccine booster

    Request the vaccine and complete your confidential online questionnaire. One of our clinicians will check your suitability and contact you via your Patient Record. Once approved, you can select at which LloydsPharmacy store you would like to be vaccinated and call to book your appointment.

    The vaccine comes as one injection, usually given in the upper arm.

  • Effectiveness

    More than 9 out of 10 will be protected after receiving a booster vaccine. 4 weeks after this booster you may wish to undergo a blood test to check that you are immune.

  • Side effects

    Most people experience no side effects from this vaccine. However, you may experience pain, swelling or reddening of the skin at the injection site, fatigue, headache, mild fever, nausea, vomiting, decreased appetite and diarrhoea.

  • Risk of severe allergic reaction (anaphylaxis)

    All LloydsPharmacy staff who provide this service are trained to manage anaphylaxis. Anaphylaxis is a severe allergic reaction to a vaccine. Symptoms of anaphylaxis can include fainting, shortness of breath, falling blood pressure and swelling of the face and neck. Anaphylaxis is extremely rare after receiving the injection.

  • How the booster works

    The vaccine booster stimulates the body's immune system to fight a possible hepatitis B infection without causing the disease itself. It cannot protect you from hepatitis B if you are already infected, or protect you against any other type of liver infection.

  • About Hepatitis B

    Hepatitis B is a highly infectious virus that can cause flu-like symptoms, yellowing of the skin and eyes (jaundice), tummy pain, diarrhoea, feeling and being sick, and a loss of appetite. Health workers are often at high risk of exposure. It is spread through blood and bodily fluids and treatment depends on how long you have had the virus for. The best way to protect against hepatitis B is to get a vaccination, and stay up-to-date with vaccines.
