Hepatitis A

The Office of Emergency Management is actively engaged with regional partners to monitor, tract and communicate information about Hepatitis A. We are in continued communications with the University’s Chief Health Officer, Michigan Department of Health and Human Services Center and the Wayne County Department of Health, Veterans and Community Wellness to monitor the increase in Hepatitis A cases.

Vaccination is strongly recommended and usually consists of two doses, but the vaccine is in short supply, so the CDC recommends individuals should receive just one dose, and that a second dose can be received when the vaccine supply is more plentiful.

If you suspect that you or someone you know may have been exposed to Hepatitis A, you should contact your physician or health care provider by telephone as soon as possible to assess your risk factors and receive guidance regarding further evaluation.
