Hepatitis A Vaccination Reminder
Time to Schedule Second Dose
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.
