Hepatitis A

Travellers, who do not have immunity to Hepatitis A, are at significant risk of infection in countries with poor quality drinking water and sanitation.

The virus is mainly spread through contaminated food or water, especially untreated water supplies.

Hepatitis A

Hepatitis A is most prevalent in developing countries, and it’s important to know that resort level accommodation does not always exclude the risk of infection.

The disease, which is more likely to be fatal in the older traveller, often causes a major disruption for all travellers – cutting short holiday and business travel and/or requiring time (up to months) off work.

Full immunisation requires two doses of the Hepatitis A vaccine.
