Hepatitis B vaccination camp for scribes

The Dispur Hospital has organized another Hepatitis B vaccination camp for scribes at  Guwahati Press Club on 5 May 2015. The city based media persons, who had already taken the first dose of Hepatitis B vaccine on 5 April last, are being requested to attend the next vaccination camp for second (and final) dose of Hepatitis B vaccine without fail.

Caused by the hepatitis B virus, Hepatitis B is an infectious disease that affects the human liver. It can cause both acute and chronic infections. Shockingly many people may have no symptom during the initial infection. The virus is transmitted by exposure to infectious blood or body fluids. The infection has been preventable by vaccination since 1982 and the vaccination is recommended by the World Health Organization in the first day of life if possible. Statistics reveal that over 750,000 people die of hepatitis B each year.

The second dose (Hepatitis B) vaccination camp will start at 11 am (5 May) in the press club and continue till 1 pm, informed Ujjal Saikia,  public relation officer of Dispur Hospitals Pvt Ltd, Ganeshguri, Guwahati.
