HEPATITIS A VACCINE – ADULT
Hepatitis A can be transmitted through food sources from an infected food handler or less commonly through sexual contact. The hepatitis A vaccine is recommended for travelers going to countries where there is a high prevalence of Hepatitis A. In fact, this disease is endemic in all parts of the world and we routinely recommend it for all our patients whether you are traveling abroad or not. It is a two dose vaccine with the second dose given 6-18 months after the first dose.
