Hepatitis A Vaccine Injuries
Hepatitis A is a viral infection of the liver that is spread through feces‑infected
food or water or through close contact with a person already infected
by the hepatitis A virus. It is a more common problem in parts of the
world that suffer from poor sanitation and a shortage of safe water sources.
In the United States, hepatitis A vaccines were first administered in the
mid 1990's—initially to children in high‑risk areas and then
to children living in regions of increasing infection levels. When paired
with a booster injection, hepatitis A immunizations are effective for
an estimated 20 years. For children, the recommended age for a hepatitis
A vaccination is between one and two‑years old. It is also recommended
for non‑immunized adults who will be traveling outside the country.
What kind of injuries can a hepatitis A vaccination cause?
It is not uncommon to suffer soreness, headaches, loss of appetite and
fatigue following a hepatitis A vaccination. Generally, these symptoms
will disappear after a couple of days. In rare instances, severe and life‑threatening
allergic reactions can develop. If you or your child experienced such
a reaction following a hepatitis A vaccination, we would like to hear
from you. Contact us today to see how we can help with your case. Working
