Hepatitis means inflammation of the liver, a vital organ that processes nutrients, filters the blood, and fights infections. When the liver is inflamed or damaged, its function can be affected. Hepatitis A is a liver infection caused by the highly contagious Hepatitis A virus (HAV). It is spread when someone unknowingly ingests the virus — even in microscopic amounts — through close personal contact with an infected person or through eating contaminated food or drink. Symptoms of Hepatitis A can last up to two months and include fatigue, nausea, stomach pain, and jaundice.
CDC recommends that all children aged 12–23 months receive a HepA vaccination series. Unvaccinated children and adolescents aged 2–18 years and adults 18+ at increased risk for HAV infection (including international travelers and those in high-risk occupations) should also be vaccinated.

Hepatitis means inflammation of the liver, a vital organ that processes nutrients, filters the blood, and fights infections. When the liver is inflamed or damaged, its function can be affected. Hepatitis B is a liver infection caused by the hepatitis B virus (HBV), which is spread through body fluids from an infected person through sexual contact; sharing needles, syringes, or other drug-injection equipment; or from mother to baby at birth. Not all people newly infected with HBV have symptoms, but for those that do, symptoms can include fatigue, poor appetite, stomach pain, nausea, and jaundice. For many people, hepatitis B is a short-term illness. For others, it can become a long-term, chronic infection that can lead to serious, even life-threatening health issues such as cirrhosis or liver cancer.
The best way to prevent Hepatitis B is to get vaccinated. Adults at high risk of HAB exposure (through lifestyle, occupation, &/or international travel) should receive a two- to three-dose HepB series.
