People Traveling to MI are Advised to Get the Hepatitis A Vaccine

Hepatitis A is a virus that hurts the liver.

"It's been recommended since 2006, but it's now being required", said Sharon Ray, a communicable disease nurse with the Barren River District Health Department in Bowling Green.

The Hepatitis A vaccine-how long does it last?

The full vaccination course involves taking two shots, about six months apart. Local health officials say numbers are significant.

"Eligible children are those with no health insurance, those with health insurance that does not cover vaccines and children receiving Medicaid", Ray said.

The Department of Health says significant outbreaks of the liver-damaging hepatitis A virus have been reported in Kentucky and MI.

Health officials in IN say that they usually see less than 20 hepatitis cases each year, but 77 have been confirmed in 2018 alone "many of which are related to an outbreak in southern in".

Cases have been confirmed in several counties, with the majority being reported in Clark and Floyd counties. "For the Barren River District, which consists of eight counties including Barren County, we average one case annually and we've had four cases", she said.

Kentucky is in the middle of a large Hepatitis outbreak.

The Kentucky Health Department is trying to dispel rumors that traveling to Kentucky for the Kentucky Derby could be unsafe because of Hepatitis A. State Health Officials said they have acted quickly to stop the disease from spreading. "Statewide, approximately 30 percent of the cases did not report risk factors". Transmission is presumed to occur person-to-person and through injection drug use; no commercial food product has been identified as being contaminated.

Hands should be washed with warm water and soap. But one key difference between Hepatitis A and its viral cousins Hepatitis B and Hepatitis C is that it's usually short-term and doesn't become a long-lasting chronic condition.

According to the health department, symptoms of hepatitis A vary and may include loss of appetite, nausea, fatigue, fever, stomachache, dark-colored urine and light-colored stools. You can also get vaccinated.

Sutfin says people who work or live closely with at-risk populations should talk to their doctor about whether to get vaccinated.
