: Can Hepatitis B be transferred from a child who has it to another child by contact?
Yes, it can.
Children at highest risk are teenagers. HBV can be transmitted through saliva, body fluids, and other contact. That is why the HBV vaccine is given at such a young age. Once vaccinated, the risk falls to nearly zero.
I hope this helps,
