Simply knowing you’re at greater risk for certain health conditions isn’t enough to protect you. You need to know how you can prevent them, what signs and symptoms to watch for, and what treatments are available if you have a health condition.

Disease-Prevention Strategies

As part of our effort to support your health, we offer:

Hepatitis B Screening and Vaccinations

Chronic hepatitis B is prevalent in the Chinese community and often there are no symptoms. By the time symptoms such as abdominal pain or jaundice appear, it’s often too late for treatment to be effective. Screening is the best way to determine if you have hepatitis B.

Hepatitis B Screening

El Camino Health provides free on-site screening for hepatitis B to uninsured and underserved community members. Registration and qualification is required. You must be a resident of El Camino Health's service area, which includes:

  • Alviso
  • Campbell
  • Cupertino
  • Los Altos
  • Los Gatos
  • Milpitas
  • Mountain View
  • Palo Alto
  • San Jose
  • Santa Clara
  • Saratoga
  • Sunnyvale

Call 650-988-3234 for more information.

Hepatitis B Vaccine

If you test negative, you may want to consider getting vaccinated against the disease. Getting vaccinated is the best way to protect yourself from developing the disease. If you have medical insurance, visit your primary care provider. The hepatitis B vaccine is covered by most insurance plans. If you do not have insurance, a free vaccination may be available to you from the Santa Clara County Department of Public Health.
