Public Health Urges Those at Risk of Hepatitis A or B to Get Vaccinated

May is National Hepatitis Awareness Month, an observance to draw attention to viral diseases of the liver.

Hepatitis A and Hepatitis B are vaccine-preventable diseases. Public Health offers both Hepatitis A and Hepatitis B immunizations to those who visit one of its Sexually Transmitted Disease (STD) clinics in Champaign, Urbana or Rantoul. Anyone 19 years of age or older who visits an STD clinic is eligible for the vaccines, as is anyone who is HIV-positive. (See STD Clinic schedule, below.)
