Hepatitis Exposure and Vaccination
Oct 30, 2005
If you've been exposed to hepatitis, how long do you have to be vaccinated? My parents are stuck in cancun and trying to help victims from hurricane Katrina were exposed to feces. My father has painful sores on his feet, does this sound like Hepatitis? Is it too late for them to vaccianted?
Response from Dr. Holodniy
They can still get vaccinated. The sores are unlikely to be related to hepatitis.
