NH DHHS - Hepatitis A vaccination clinics Friday, April 11th

The Capital Area Public Health Network in coordination with the town of

Hopkinton and the New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services,

will be holding hepatitis A vaccination clinics Friday, April 11th from 5

PM – 8 PM, and Saturday April 12th from 10 AM – 2 PM. The media is

invited inside the clinic area from 4:15 PM – 4:45 PM Friday, April 11th.

At this time media will be given the opportunity to interview clinic staff

and take photographs and video of the clinic.

These clinics are a follow up to vaccination clinics held last summer

following DHHS’ investigation into two cases of hepatitis A in two food

service employees who worked at establishments in the Hopkinton area.

Hepatitis A requires a second vaccination six months after the first one to

ensure maximum coverage. During the clinics last summer more than 1100

people were vaccinated. The clinics are being held with pre-scheduled

appointments and are only for those who received their first hepatitis A

vaccine at one of the earlier clinics. The American Red Cross is assisting

with logistics for the event.
