About Hepatitis A

Hepatitis A is an inflammation of the liver caused by infection with the hepatitis A virus. Symptoms of hepatitis A infection can include jaundice (a yellowing of the skin or the eyes), fever, fatigue, loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, dark urine and light-colored stools. Symptoms develop 15-50 days after exposure to the hepatitis A virus. The virus can spread through direct contact with someone who is infected, or by consuming a contaminated food or drink.

VDH Advice For Preventing Hepatitis A Infection

    • Frequent Hand Washing – Always wash your hands with soap and warm water after using the bathroom, changing a diaper, or before preparing food. Frequent hand washing can help prevent the spread of the hepatitis A virus.
    • Sick? Stay Home From Work – People who have symptoms of hepatitis A should stay home from work, especially those individuals who work in food service.
    • Vaccinate – “Routine vaccination against hepatitis A has reduced the risk of this disease in the past decade. Vaccination is available to anyone, but specifically recommended for all children, for travelers to certain countries, and for people at high risk for infection with the virus. Hepatitis A vaccine is available from health care providers (including some pharmacies and travel clinics) to protect against this disease.”
  • The VDH also recommends that individuals contact their local health department with outbreak questions or visit their website to learn more about hepatitis A.
