  • Hepatitis A is a liver infection and most people recover without any long-term liver problems. The virus is spread mainly by oral contact with feces containing the virus.
  • Hepatitis B is a liver disease caused by infection with the Hepatitis B virus. It spreads very easily. It can be short-term or long-term. It spreads from one person to another through body fluids.
  • Tetanus (Td) is caused by bacteria. A booster shot every 10 years is recommended. Tetanus is now bundled with Diphtheria.
  • TDaP is a bundled booster shot: Tetanus, Diphtheria and Pertussis (whooping cough).
