FAQ

Hepatitis A is a liver infection caused by the hepatitis A virus. You catch hepatitis A by swallowing the virus in food or drink that contains it, or touching your mouth with your hands that have picked up the virus from touching infected poo.

Not everyone with hepatitis A infection gets symptoms and in those that do, they are mild. 

The most common symptoms include:

  • Feeling tired and generally unwell
  • A mild temperature (fever)
  • Loss of appetite, feeling or being sick

Prevention is focused on paying strict attention to hand hygiene and paying safe food and water precautions.

A vaccine is available to protect against Hepatitis A.

Adults and children over 1 year: It is usually injected into the upper arm or thigh.

A single dose can offer protection for a year minimum. A booster is usually given between 6 and 12 months after the first dose but can be given up to 36 months later. This booster will protect you against Hepatitis A beyond 10 years. 

You will be protected against Hepatitis A about 14 days after you receive the first dose.

We provide you with certificates for Yellow Fever and Meningitis ACWY vaccinations. We give administration records for the rest.
