Florida, like other parts of the United States, is experiencing a Public Health Emergency as a result of Hepatitis A Virus (HAV)
In Florida, the key to controlling this outbreak is GETTING VACCINATED! The HAV vaccine is safe and effective.
At Risk Population:

- Individuals using illegal drugs
In addition, individuals who are at risk for serious problems if they get HAV should get vaccinated.
Medically Vulnerable Population:
- Individuals with liver disease
- Individuals over 60 years of age with an underlying medical condition, such as diabetes mellitus or heart disease or high blood pressure
- Individuals with clotting factor disorders
Ask your health care provider if you or someone you know should be vaccinated.
