Hepatitis B Vaccine offered to all Babies in the UK

Image result for hepatitis B ribbonAll babies from the 1st of August will be offered the Hepatitis B vaccine as recommended by the World Health Organisation in 1992. The UK is one of the last countries to provide this vaccine to babies and originally only provided the vaccine to those at high risk of contracting the virus (babies whose mothers were in infected). However latest research has shown how successful the vaccine has been in Europe and now all babies in the UK will also be able to benefit.

STaSS in the Community!

 At the Summer Fun day and Football Tournament at Leon School, STaSS made an appearance in a successful attempt to raise awareness about HIV, the charity IMG 4721 and to conduct free and confidential HIV Quick tests. A £10 Boots voucher was offered as an incentive to the “at risk groups” to encourage attendants to test and proved extremely successful. As always the STaSS stand offered a range of leaflets giving information on HIV, PrEP ( a HIV prevention medication) and other Sexually Transmitted Infections (STI’s). STaSS sponsored the trophy for the winning team of the football tournament and players where given free condoms and pens which encouraged testing at the office.
