Hepatitis A Vaccination for Adults (2 Doses)
What is Hepatitis A?
Hepatitis A is a viral liver disease that can cause mild to severe illness. The virus is primarily spread when an uninfected (and unvaccinated) person ingests food or water that is contaminated with the faeces of an infected person. The disease is closely associated with unsafe water or food, inadequate sanitation and poor personal hygiene. Symptoms include fever, fatigue, abdominal pain, pale stools, dark-coloured urine, loss of appetite, and yellowing of the skin or eyes. It can take weeks or months for people recovering from the illness to return to work, school, or daily life.
