As the Hepatitis A virus continues to spread across the state of Georgia, it is urgent to get vaccinated as soon as possible to prevent infection.

For more information on the current outbreak and for the latest number of cases by state, visit: CDC/hepatitis A (scroll down below the US map).

Hepatitis A Symptoms
Hepatitis A can cause fever, fatigue, loss of appetite, diarrhea, abdominal pain, vomiting, yellow skin or eyes, dark urine and clay-colored stool. The infection can range from a mild illness lasting several weeks to a severe illness lasting a few months and, in some cases, can even cause death.
Who is at Risk
People at highest risk are those in contact with a confirmed hepatitis A case, injection and non-injection drug users, homeless populations, men who have sex with other men, those recently incarcerated and those with chronic liver diseases such as cirrhosis.
