There is currently  an increase in diagnoses of Hep A with particular emphasis on the demographic of men who have sex with men being at highest risk.

Hepatitis A is spread through person to person transmission, including sexual activity, and through contaminated food and water. The incubation period is 15 to 50 days. Patients frequently experience fever, malaise, anorexia, right upper quadrant pain and nausea, followed a few days later by dark urine and jaundice. Cases are infectious for two weeks before to seven days after tne onet of jaundice.

Vaccination is currently available for individuals who are at high risk- men who have sex with men, intravnous drug users, chronic liver disease.

Speak to your GP- they will be offering a blood test to those at risk to determine if a vaccination is required and suitable for you.
