What is the Hepatitis A vaccine?

The vaccine for Hepatitis A is effective in preventing infections caused by the Hepatitis A Virus (HAV). HAV is commonly found in the excrement of individuals who have been infected with Hepatitis A, and it is typically transmitted through the consumption of food or water that has been contaminated by fecal matter. This is usually due to inadequate sanitation or hygiene.

Older children and adults are more prone to experiencing symptoms associated with Hepatitis A infections, whereas younger children may not exhibit any symptoms.

What are some symptoms of Hepatitis A?

Symptoms may include:

  • Dark urine
  • Fever
  • Jaundice (yellowing of skin or eyes)
  • Loss of appetite
  • Nausea
  • Tiredness
  • Vomiting

Who should receive the Hepatitis A vaccine?

  1. Individuals who are 12 months of age or older and planning to travel to or reside in regions where Hepatitis A is prevalent should get vaccinated
  2. Additionally, those who are more likely to get infected with Hepatitis A and desire protection should consider getting vaccinated

The vaccine may be administered alone or in combination with another vaccine, such as the Hepatitis A and B vaccine.

What are some side effects of the Hepatitis A vaccine?

You may experience these side effects:

  1. Feeling faint
  2. Pain, redness and swelling at the injection site
  3. Headache and fever
  4. Fatigue, malaise and irritability
  5. Loss of appetite, stomach discomfort (nausea and vomiting), diarrhea

How many doses are required for the Hepatitis A vaccine?

Typically, it is necessary to have two doses of the vaccine, with the second dose being administered 6 to 18 months after the first. However, if the vaccine is given alongside another one, and depending on the age of the individual, they may need to receive two or three shots. Consult with our doctors for more information.

Why Are Vaccinations Important?

Vaccinations offer significant individual benefits by boosting the immune system's ability to fight off specific infectious diseases. They reduce the risk of contracting serious illnesses, leading to fewer medical visits and a lower chance of hospitalization.

By staying up-to-date with vaccinations, individuals can also enjoy a greater sense of well-being and freedom to engage in various social activities, knowing they are protected against contagious diseases.
