Hi!
Hepatitis A is a self limiting viral illness. It is an acute infection and is usually cured within 4-6 weeks with no permanent liver damage. Bed rest and maintenance of hydration is important. A strict no fat diet is recommended in such people. Two doses of the vaccine are needed for lasting protection.Usuallly the duration of illness is not affected by not taking the second dose but it may affect the severity of illness. Do write to us again with more queries.
Best wishes!
