One thought on “Who should not get the hepatitis A vaccine?

    But if your child is suffering from a moderate to severe illness, wait until he’s feeling better. Tell you child’s doctor if you baby has any severe allergies. The long-term physical consequences of hepatitis A are usually far less serious than those of hepatitis B or C. This vaccine (HepA) protects your child against the hepatitis A virus, which causes a liver disease. Still, a bout of hepatitis A can last weeks or months, and the worst cases can cause liver damage and even death. A child who has a severe allergic reaction to the vaccine after the first shot or who is known to be allergic to any part of the vaccine should not receive further shots. This vaccine is so mild that kids can get it even if they’re feeling slightly under the weather.
