The best way to prevent hepatitis A is through vaccination with the hepatitis A vaccine. Vaccination is recommended for all children age 12 months or older, for travelers to certain countries, and for people at high risk for infection with the virus.
The hepatitis A vaccine is given as two shots, six months apart. The hepatitis A vaccine also comes in a combination form, containing both hepatitis A and B vaccine, that can be given to persons 18 years or older. This form is given as three shots, over a period of six months or as three shots over one month and a booster shot at 12 months.
Getting hepatitis A vaccine is much safer than getting the disease. But a vaccine, like any medicine, could possibly cause serious problems such as severe allergic reactions.
The first dose should be given at 12-23 months old. Children who are not vaccinated by two years old can be vaccinated at later visits.
Hepatitis A vaccine is recommended for healthy international travelers age 12 months or older; the first dose of Hepatitis A vaccine should be administered as soon as travel is considered. A shot called immune globulin (IG) can be considered in addition to hepatitis A vaccine for older adults, immunocompromised persons, and persons with chronic liver disease or other chronic medical conditions who are traveling within two weeks.
IG without hepatitis A vaccine can be given to travelers who are younger than 12 months old, allergic to a vaccine component, or who elect not to receive vaccine.
The hepatitis A vaccine series may be started whenever a person is at risk of infection:
- Men who have sexual contact with other men.
- Users of certain illegal drugs, both injection and non-injection.
- Family and caregivers before arrival of international adoptees.
- People with chronic (lifelong) liver diseases.
- People who are treated with clotting-factor concentrates.
- People who work with hepatitis A infected animals or in a hepatitis A research laboratory.
