Vaccinate against hepatitis A/B/C

Vaccinate against hepatitis A and B

Hepatitis A and B are inflammations of the liver that can make you very ill. Hepatitis B is very contagious and is quite common among certain groups in the Netherlands. You can become infected with hepatitis B through unprotected sexual contact or blood-to-blood contact. Hepatitis A is transmitted through food or water contaminated with feces, or from anal sex.

Condoms help prevent hepatitis infection, but unfortunately do not offer full protection. Only vaccinations protect you fully and for life. Vaccinations for hepatitis A and B are free at ACS.

What about hepatitis C?

Unfortunately, there is no vaccination against hepatitis C. You can reduce the risk of hepatitis C by using condoms during anal sex and when using toys, by using latex gloves when fisting and by not sharing lubricant. Always wash your hands, penis and anus after each sexual encounter and make sure used toys and other items are cleaned and disinfected.
