Industrial contraction risk of Hepatitis
Apr 16, 2002

Is it possible for a construction worker in a raw sewage plant to be at risk of contracting hepatitis a &/or B? Should such a worker obtain any immunisations, and if so which? Many thanks Pamela Hewitt-Reid

Response from Dr. Dieterich

Hepatitis A is fecally transmitted so it would be a great idea for a sewage worker to be vaccinated. All adults should be vaccinated for hepatitis B. All of our kids are gettting the HBV vaccine now. Go for the vaccines! DTD
