Hepatitis A Vaccine Injuries

Hepatitis A is a viral infection that usually originates from a feces contaminated water or food source. Common throughout the world, Hepatitis A is more prevalent in the United States among food handlers and in restaurants. Hepatitis A spreads from close contact with an infected person.  Once contracted, Hepatitis A targets the liver of the person recently infected. If you have suffered an adverse reaction or injury after receiving the Hepatitis A vaccine, you may be entitled to compensation from a federal fund called the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Trust Fund.

What is the Hepatitis A Vaccine?

Since the 1990s, the Hepatitis A vaccine has become increasingly standard for children and older adults. Children typically receive the Hepatitis A vaccine along with a booster shot between one and two years of age. The estimated efficacy of the vaccine is 20 years. In recent years, the United States has seen a steady growth of Hepatitis A outbreaks throughout the country, primarily in the restaurant industry. Due to the relatively new standard of administration of the Hepatitis A vaccine, many older Americans are unvaccinated and susceptible to the infection.
