explained to the mother. Many a time parents are under false belief that they have given Hepatitis B vaccine, so the child
will never get jaundice in his lifetime. This is a misconception, The child I not vaccinated against Hepatitis A as it is a water
born disease, and more common, so unless you vaccinated the child against Hepatitis A, he has got chances of getting jaundice in the future.
