Hep A Infections in the US, Implications for Childhood Immunization.
This is one that really irritates me. Hepatitis A infections in children are frequently so minor they are not even noticed. Adult cases are where problems can occur. However, we vaccinate the children as an attempt to cut into the cycle of the transmission of the virus. Because children are accessible and we can mandate stuff like vaccinations. Remember the next time your child or someone you know gets a hep A vaccine–your child is being used.
