Do you think I should vaccinate my baby against hepatitis b?

ABSOLUTELY. By vaccinating your baby you not only prevent hepatitis b but by doing so you potentially prevent liver cancer in your child future.
Why wouldn't you. Hep b is a hardy virus & has been known to infect people from a needle discarded a year before. Infection can go unrecognized for years until liver failure occurs.(i've seen it in a 9mo ).Chronic disease can also lead to liver cancer & the need for transplant.To eliminate such issues for a lifetime by giving a few shots in infancy seems a no brainer. Risks are negligible, gains last a lifetime.

Is she negative? If you as the male have hep b, and she does not, and it is documented, the risk is low for the baby. Some may not convert right away though, so she may be in the early stages of infection, and so covering the baby with hep b Immune Globulin at birth may be a good idea (just tell the OB about the exposure). Most likely risk would come from direct exposure from you to the baby, so immunize at birth. Read more...

Mix ???? One of these is given by mouth, the other as a shot. You don't "mix" the material. They can be given on the same day at the same time and be effective.The immune system works selectively responding to each individual vaccine with a separate specific response. You can give as many vaccines on a single day as are needed.These have all been tested as a group to decide when they can be given at once. Read more...
