Washing your hands thoroughly after using the restroom and before eating can help stop the spread of disease.
Are You at Risk?
Although anyone can get this highly contagious liver infection, certain groups of people are at higher risk, including men who have sex with men, people with chronic liver disease, people traveling to countries where Hepatitis A Virus is common, people who use injection and non-injection street drugs and people experiencing homelessness and those serving them.
Ask your doctor, or visit vaccinefinder.org to find places that give hepatitis A vaccines. Call the Tri-County Health Department vaccine clinic at 303-451-0123 for information about where to get free or low-cost confidential vaccines.
