Public health informs about hepatitis A
Tuesday, November 27, 2018- 11:38 a.m.
The Georgia Department of Public Health Northwest Health District is spreading the word about hepatitis A prevention to certain high-risk groups as well as the general public. “We are working to prevent the spread of this highly contagious but highly preventable disease,” says District Health Director Dr. Unini Odama, “by providing preventive information and encouraging those at risk to get vaccinated against hepatitis A.”
An information sheet explaining the disease, describing its symptoms, advising what to do if someone has symptoms, detailing who is at high risk of hepatitis A, and providing preventive information is available for viewing and download/printing on the Northwest Health District website at https://bit.ly/2QLGC94 or at your local county health department.
