Better2Know Terms & Conditions
What is Hepatitis B?
Hepatitis B is a serious infection of the liver caused by a virus, known as the Hepatitis B Virus (HBV), which is spread by exposure to the virus by direct contact with infected blood, saliva, semen or vaginal fluids. Certain treatments can help manage the condition, but currently there is no known cure. However, it is usually preventable through a course of Hepatitis B vaccinations.
Why consider a Hepatitis B immunity test?
If your work involves needles or close contact with blood or bodily fluids from other people, such as medical professionals, laboratory technicians, food service workers or sex workers, then you should consider a regular Hepatitis B immunity test to determine your level of immunity against Hepatitis B. This test is also important for anyone who has had a course of Hepatitis B vaccinations or a recent booster injection.
The Better2Know Hepatitis B immunity test should be done at least 4 weeks after completing a course of injections or a booster. It does not test whether you have a current infection. Click on the following link if you would like to book a Hepatitis B test

- Extreme fatigue
- Joint pain
- Abdominal pain
