Protect Yourself from Hepatitis A
The Florida Department of Health in Nassau County is providing free hepatitis A vaccines to those who qualify. Please call 904-875-6110, #1 to see if you are eligible.
The number of reported hepatitis A cases in Florida has steadily increased each month since April 2018, primarily among people who use drugs, people who are homeless, or men who have sex with men.
Common symptoms of hepatitis A include stomach pain, nausea and vomiting, and yellow skin or eyes.
Hepatitis A can spread by objects, food or drink containing small amounts of stool from someone with hepatitis A.
Most people with hepatitis A will fully recover, but recently 77% of people with hepatitis A in Florida were hospitalized.
The hepatitis A vaccine is safe and effective. Even one dose can protect you.
