Hepatitis Vaccine
I contracted hepatitis A some 15 yrs ago, and wonder if my  immunity to it wears off over time.     The school I go to suggested I get Hepatitis B vaccine before I start my clinicals with them.  There was no mention of Hepatitis A vaccine.  Thanks in advance.

Hello!
A person who has suffered from hepatitis A acquires lifelong immunity to the illness. He will not acquire the disease again in his lifetime. In such a person hepatitis A vaccine is not recommended. Hepatitis B vaccination in the long term reduces the incidence of this disease and also its chronic complications such as chronic active Hepatitis-B and Hepatitis-B associated cirrhosis and primary hepatocellular carcinoma. You may take the hepatitis B vaccine. Hope it helps.
Take care and good luck!
