I am concernedabout my trip to China in June where Hep A is prevalent. would i be safe if i stick to properly cooked food and bottled water? would it be too late for me to start on my Hep A vaccination since it's already April now.
Response from Dr. Dieterich
You can minimize the risk but the vaccine will help some, but you should follow up with the second shot in 6 months. Have a good trip! DTD
