Help, I've eaten some of those Hepatitis A Berries

Hepatitis A is a disease caused by a virus. It is contracted when the faeces of an infected person gets into our food. It is a common disease in less developed parts of the world. It is rarely fatal but more serious in persons over the age of 40. More info here on Hepatitis A from the CDC.

Travellers who have visited our clinic will have have been vaccinated against Hepatitis A.

If you have had two Hepatitis A vaccines 6 or 12 months apart….you are covered…. you will have LIFETIME protection from Hepatitis A.

One Hepatitis A vaccine is NOT enough protection to give lifetime cover. Just have the booster now.

Even if your first dose of vaccine was more than one year ago, it is not ' too late'. You DO NOT have to start the course again. Even if you have not eaten those berries, if you have not finished your Hepatitis A vaccine course, it would make sense to finish the course.

If you have lost your Hepatitis A vaccine records ( and did not have the Hepatitis A vaccine through us, as we keep all our records ) it is safe to have extra doses of the vaccine…. then you may want to consider getting the vaccine record app to keep your vaccines records handy on your phone.
