Hepatitis A is an infection of the liver which can affect anyone, although young, elderly, and those with a compromised immune system may be more susceptible. Symptoms vary but can include fever, nausea/vomiting, fatigue, diarrhea, and jaundice. Symptoms are often mild and usually last one to two weeks.

 

The Haldimand-Norfolk Health Unit reminds everyone that hand hygiene is the most effective preventative measure against any communicable disease.

 

If you have consumed the product within the last 14 days, are asymptomatic, and have not had a hepatitis A vaccine in the past, vaccines are available through healthcare providers and at some pharmacies.
