Preventing Hepatitis A Virus

Hepatitis A is a vaccine-preventable, communicable disease of the liver caused by the hepatitis A virus (HAV). It is usually transmitted person-to-person through the consumption of contaminated food or water, or from an person infected with hepatitis A. Most adults with hepatitis A have symptoms, including fatigue, low appetite, stomach pain, nausea, and jaundice, that usually resolve within 2 months of infection; most children less than 6 years of age do not have symptoms or have an unrecognized infection. Antibodies produced in response to hepatitis A infection last for life and protect against reinfection. The best way to prevent hepatitis A infection is to get vaccinated. We offer all vaccinations, including hepatitis A, in our walk in clinics and at no charge to children under 18. Click here for our hours of operation for immunizations.
