Hepatitis A is a rare disease in the UK, often picked up during travel. It is the least severe of all Hepatitis infections, & affects the liver. Vaccination can prevent infection.

A vaccine against Hepatitis A is recommended for travelers, as although it is rare in the UK, there is a higher incidence in areas of the world with poor sanitation. The bacteria causing Hepatitis A are usually transmitted by ingesting contaminated food & drink – it is passed on through bacteria found in the stools, so is most commonly spread by lack of hand-washing in food preparation).
