This is a reminder that Hepatitis A is a preventable disease.  It spreads from contaminated food or water, or contact with someone who is infected. Symptoms include fatigue, nausea, abdominal pain, loss of appetite, and low-grade fever.

The most effective way to prevent this disease is by receiving a vaccination.  The Clark County Health Department offers the Hepatitis A vaccine for insured persons, as well as, for self-paying persons.  Insured persons should expect to pay their co-pay at the time of service.  Self-paying persons should expect to pay $80 for the vaccine.

Please call 812-283-2739 or 812-283-2459 to speak with a Clark County Health Department Public Health Nurse for more information on getting the vaccine.
