Hepatitis B VirusBy the time your newborn is 12 hours old, federal health officials
recommend administering the first dose of hepatitis B vaccine. TWELVE HOURS!
If you want to avoid it you must make it VERY clear to all hospital staff
well before the delivery and monitor your baby closely until you leave the
Three hepatitis B shots are part of the standard government-recommended
childhood vaccination schedule, with the third dose to be given before 18
months of age.
But hepatitis B is a primarily blood-transmitted adult disease associated
with risky lifestyle choices such as unprotected sex with multiple partners
and intravenous drug use involving sharing needles — it is NOT primarily a
"children's disease" or one that is a common threat to newborn babies.
In fact, according to the National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC):1
“The primary reason that the CDC recommended hepatitis B vaccination
for all newborns in the United States in 1991 is because public health
officials and doctors could not persuade adults in high risk groups
(primarily IV drug abusers and persons with multiple sexual partners) to get

But now new research has shown that by the time a child reaches his or
her teenage years – the time when acquiring a hepatitis B infection may be
more likely – the protection from the childhood vaccine may have long since
Infant Hepatitis B Vaccination May be Ineffective in Teenagers
The study, which involved nearly 9,000 high school students, found that
by the age of 15, about 15 percent of teens who received the full series of
hepatitis B shots as infants tested positive for hepatitis B surface antigen
(HBsAg), which is an early indicator of infection or a sign that the person
is a chronic carrier of the virus.2
This percentage was even higher among teens who had received the
hepatitis B vaccine off schedule, or whose mothers were high risk, meaning
they tested positive for hepatitis B e antigen (HBeAg).
In other words, it appears that in many this vaccine does NOT provide
lasting protection. The researchers noted:
“A significant proportion of complete vaccinees may have lost their
immunological memories against HBsAg.”
It’s for this reason that the hepatitis B vaccine for newborns and young
children is the least justifiable of any vaccine I can think of and certainly
should not be mandated for daycare or school attendance. Remember, the
disease is only transmitted via contaminated needles, blood transfusion, or
contact with contaminated blood and/or body fluids.
In fact, it is described by the CDC primarily as a sexually-transmitted
disease, e.g. vaginal, anal, oral sex transmitted. While babies can contract
hepatitis B vertically via their mother at birth, this very rare risk can be
identified via prebirth hepatitis screening of mothers, hence making
vaccination essentially unnecessary in nearly every case.

And so, we must ask ourselves, if the only way a newborn infant can be
infected with hepatitis B in a hospital is through infected blood or semen,
either the hospital is doing a terrible job of protecting their newborns
against such exposure, or the medical justification for vaccinating infants
against Hepatitis B simply doesn’t exist.
Hepatitis B Vaccine Linked to SIDS and Other Serious Side Effects
The recommendation to vaccinate newborns against a disease they have
little to no risk of catching becomes all the more ludicrous when you
consider the serious side effects the vaccine may cause. As NVIC reported:3
“As of March 2012, there was a total of 66,654 hepatitis B vaccine-
related adverse events reported to the federal Vaccine Adverse Events
Reporting System (VAERS), including reports of headache, irritability,
extreme fatigue, brain inflammation, convulsions, rheumatoid arthritis, optic
neuritis, multiple sclerosis, lupus, Guillain Barre Syndrome (GBS) and
Cancer Can Be Cured and Is Cured.
