Hepatitis A Vaccination

HEPATITIS A Vaccine – FLEET STREET CLINIC

If you’re looking for a Hepatitis A vaccination in London, Fleet Street Clinic can help.

Hepatitis A is a viral infection that is spread through food and water contaminated with the virus. It occurs world wide including in Central and South America, Africa, Eastern Europe, Middle-East, Asia, and the Indian Subcontinent. Recent outbreaks have also occurred in Czech Republic and Hawaii.

Hepatitis A affects the liver causing jaundice, and whilst most people make a full recovery, it can result in chronic liver disease and be fatal.

Hepatitis A Vaccination 

Hepatitis A is easily preventable through vaccination, and there are several types of vaccines available in the UK to adults and children over the age of 1 yr. It can be given alone (Avaxim, Vaqta) or in combination with typhoid (Viatim), whereby a single injection provides protection for 12 months. A second injection given 6 months later will afford 25 years of protection against Hepatitis A.

It is also possible to receive Hepatitis A in combination with Hepatitis B (TwinRix or Ambirix) whereby 2 or 3 doses of the vaccination can be given between 3 weeks or 6 months.

In addition to the vaccination, travellers should be careful with food and water and:-

  • Ensure all food is cooked thoroughly and served hot
  • Stick to bottled water only with a seal or boiled water– no tap water,
  • Avoid ice (usually made from tap water)
  • Eat fruit that can be peeled or sliced without contamination (such as bananas)
  • Avoid high risk food such as shellfish, raw or rare meat, salad, buffet food, reheated food
