What is Hepatitis A? Hepatitis A is a highly contagious disease that attacks the liver. People infected with hepatitis A are most contagious from two weeks before onset of symptoms to one week afterwards.
Not everyone who is infected will have all the symptoms. Symptoms usually start within 28 days of exposure to the virus with a range of 15-50 days.
Hepatitis A vaccine is the best method of preventing infection.
No medicines can cure the disease once symptoms appear. People with hepatitis A symptoms should seek medical care immediately.Health Department Offers Hepatitis A Vaccinations (PDF, 144kB)
