Hepatitis A Immunization

Hepatitis A vaccine

Hepatitis A is acquired by eating poorly prepared foods such as raw oysters. A vaccine for hepatitis A became available in 1995.  A two shot series has shown to last at least 25 years.  

Hepatitis A is not a required vaccine in Florida.  It is a required in many western states (ie. Arizona, Utah, Texas & Oklahoma).  After practicing in Florida for more than 10 years, I have never seen a case of Hepatitis A.

I recommend my patients get the Hepatitis A vaccine eventually, especially before before traveling internationally. It is easiest to get it over with before 2 years old as kids complain and fight more as they age.
