Hepatitis A Outbreak in the U.S.

Monday, May 14, 2018

In an effort to inform clinicians of the Hepatitis A Outbreak in Michigan, MPRO has teamed up with the Southeastern Michigan Health Association, local health departments, and health plans. Please read their joint letter to find hepatitis A related information on all providers, locations and hours of local health departments and patient education.

If you are unable to vaccinate your patients against Hepatitis A, it's encouraged to refer them to a local health department or pharmacy. Even though flu season has come to an end, it's still important to assess and document for adult immunizations, including pneumonia, shingles, flu and hepatitis A and B.

If you'd like patient education on adult immunizations, please view this vaccine card, a two-sided, 5x7 card that gives a brief explanation of what adult vaccinations are recommended. The cards can be sent to a printer at your convenience or you can request a limited supply by emailing Michelle Dewey.
