  • Hepatitis A outbreak

    Fortunately most children in our practice have been vaccinated against Hepatitis A. It is an excellent vaccine and should protect you child if he/she was exposed. If you child has not had the vaccine, call our office during our normal hours and we can schedule you for a vaccine visit. The Hepatitis A vaccine given within 2 weeks of exposure, will protect against getting the disease. Hepatitis A is a self limited disease (meaning it will go away on its own) with vomiting and diarrhea, If you child starts to look Jaundiced (yellow) please call our office. https://www.delawareonline.com/story/life/2019/04/11/buffalo-wild-wings-customers-may-have-been-exposed-hepatitis/3440297002/?fbclid=IwAR0xAYLMY7HAMvN-ofpqSrL4-Vw0o9I9YLpBw4r9A_4iMj1eJWcdcf0SIdU
