Hepatitis A vaccine for 18mos old

Posted By Deborah on July 09, 1999 at 09:58:10
In Israel the National Health system will be starting to vaccinate 18 mos olds for Hepatitis A.  While I understand this vaccine is not new, I wanted to know if or how much it has been tested in toddlers/babies, if there are other countries where it is routinely given, what are possible side effects for babies and under what conditions I should consider vaccinating my child?  My understanding from some reading is that 90% or so of the Hepatitis A cases go unnoticed, untreated and cause no damage.  Is there truth to that?
Thank you.
