Drug Ingredient Information



Information for patients
Drug Information The hepatitis A vaccine protects you against a type of liver infection called hepatitis A. The vaccine will not protect you from other types of hepatitis. Hepatitis A vaccination is recommended for all children older than age 1. People who work or travel in areas where hepatitis A is common should be vaccinated. These areas include Africa, Asia (except Japan), the Mediterranean, Eastern Europe, the Middle East, Central and South America, Mexico, and parts of the Caribbean. If you are traveling to these areas before you are fully immunized (fewer than 4 weeks after your first shot), you should get a preventive dose of immunoglobulin (IG). If you are just a short-term traveler to these areas, you may wish to receive immunoglobulin (IG) instead of the vaccine. Other people who are at higher risk for hepatitis A include: People who use recreational, injectable drugs People who work with the hepatitis A virus in a laboratory or with primates that may be infected with the virus People who have chronic liver disease People who receive clotting factor concentrate to treat hemophilia or other clotting disorders Military personnel Men who have sex with other men Employees of child day care centers People who care for patients living in long-term nursing homes and other facilities
