Article: 55/3906

The Travel and International Health Team of Public Health Scotland (PHS) has reviewed the most up-to-date information available on the occurrence of Hepatitis A infection in every country worldwide. Based on this review, some of the Hepatitis A vaccine recommendations on the TRAVAX (for health professionals) and fitfortravel (for the general public) websites have recently changed.

The revised Hepatitis A vaccine recommendations can be found in the 'vaccination advice' section of each TRAVAX country page, and the hepatitis A page can also be consulted for further information on the disease. On the fitfortravel website, information on hepatitis A vaccine recommendations can be found under the ‘vaccinations’ section of each country page, with additional information available on the hepatitis A page.
