HB VAX II ADULT GREEN 1ML PFS EA

H-B-VAX II [hepatitis B vaccine (recombinant)] is a non-infectious subunit viral vaccine derived from surface antigen (HBsAg or Australia antigen) of hepatitis B virus produced in
yeast cells.

The antigen is harvested and purified from fermentation cultures of a recombinant strain of the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae containing the gene for the adw subtype of HBsAg. The vaccine contains no detectable yeast DNA but may contain up to 1% yeast protein.

The vaccine against hepatitis B is free of association with human blood or blood products.

Each 1.0 mL dose of adult formulation vaccine contains 10 g of hepatitis B surface antigen adsorbed onto approximately 0.5 mg aluminium hydroxide, each 0.5 mL dose of the paediatric formulation vaccine contains 5 g of hepatitis B surface antigen adsorbed onto approximately 0.25 mg aluminium hydroxide, and each 1.0 mL dose of the dialysis formulation contains 40 g of hepatitis B surface antigen adsorbed onto approximately 0.5 mg of aluminium hydroxide. The vaccine is of the adw subtype.

All formulations of the vaccine are preservative-free.
