Hepatitis A Vaccine Injury Attorney
What is Hepatitis A?
Hepatitis A is a viral infection of the liver that is spread through feces‑infected food/water or close contact with a person already infected by the 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.
