May is Hepatitis Awareness Month

The word “hepatitis” means inflammation of the liver. Hepatitis is most often caused by one of several viruses, which is why it is often called viral hepatitis. In the United States, the most common types of viral hepatitis are Hepatitis A, Hepatitis B and Hepatitis C.

Vaccine-preventable: Hepatitis A and Hepatitis B
Hepatitis A and Hepatitis B can both be prevented with vaccines. Cases of Hepatitis A have dramatically declined in the United States over the last 20 years largely due to vaccination efforts. The Hepatitis A vaccine is recommended for all children at one year of age and for adults who may be at increased risk.

 

 

The Henry County Health Center provides FREE testing for Hepatitis. Free vaccines are also provided for food handlers!

  • Assessing and promoting health and safety through training and self-assessment
  • Prevents or minimizes the occurrence of diseases and injuries through immunizations, community education, and nursing services
  • Plans, prepares and responds to natural or man-made disasters
