Hepatitis A Vaccination Reminder

Post Date:05/12/2020 10:06 PM

Freeholder Brian G. Gallagher and the Somerset County Department of Health are reminding individuals who were vaccinated in November 2019, following the potential Hepatitis A exposure at the Somerville ShopRite, that it’s time to contact their healthcare provider for a second dose.

The Hepatitis A shot that individuals received in November protected them from a one-time exposure.  The second dose will provide those individuals with long-term protection against Hepatitis A.

Most health insurance plans cover Hepatitis A vaccinations. If you don’t have health insurance, or your plan’s out-of-pocket costs for vaccines aren’t affordable, you can still get vaccinated. For more information on how to get free or low-cost vaccines, visit the CDC’s website at: https://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/adults/pay-for-vaccines.html
