Hepatitis A

Hepatitis A Information  Link will redirect to the CDC website for educational information...

  Due to the recent cases of Hepatitis A in our region, the Lawrence County Health Department is focused on the wellness of our community and decreasing the potential for incidents to occur.

  We will be administering the Hepatitis A Vaccine to the uninsured population in our area. According to the Center of Disease and Control, Hepatitis A can be prevented through a Hepatitis A vaccination. To get the full benefit, two shots given 6 months apart are required. Hepatitis A is a highly contagious liver infection cause by the hepatitis A virus. It usually spreads when a person unknowingly ingests the virus from objects, food, or drinks contaminated by small, undetected amounts of stool from the infected person.

  In United States, preexposure vaccinations are recommended for persons at highest risk for infection and persons for whom the infection would result in adverse consequences. The population that we will be targeting because of the increased risk of Hepatitis A is as follows:

 

·         Jail population- A vaccination should be administered to adults as soon as incarcerated using the appropriate dosage schedule.

·         Homeless individuals per CDC recommendations

·         Individuals who are IV drug users per CDC guidelines.

 

  Symptoms you should monitor for Hepatitis A are as follows: 

·         Fever

·         Fatigue

·         Loss of Appetite

·         Nausea

·         Vomiting

·         Abdominal Pain

·         Dark Urine

·         Clay-Colored Stools

·         Joint Pain

·         Yellowing of the skin and eyes

      Symptoms may start occurring 4 weeks after exposure, but can occur as early as 2 and as late 7 weeks after exposure. Symptoms may last less than 2 months, but rarely can last up to 6 months.

 

    For more information on getting the vaccine call (740)-532-3962 or walk-ins are taken as well during the hours of 9 a.m.-11 a.m. and 1-3 p.m.   Due to current increase in request for vaccinations you are encouraged to call to make sure we have it available. We are office hours are 8am-4pm Monday-Friday.
