    How does someone get hepatitis A?

    Hepatitis A is found in fecal matter. When a person infected with hepatitis A doesn’t wash their hands after using the toilet, the germs can spread through the things they touch.

    Hepatitis A is preventable.

    Vaccines are safe and effective. Talk to your doctor or visit the immunizations page to learn about free resources.

    People who are at high risk for hepatitis A or B may be eligible for free immunizations at the Tacoma-Pierce County Health Department.

    Call our hepatitis program at (253) 649-1412 for more information.
