How Is the Hepatitis A Vaccine Given?
It is usually given by injection into a muscle.
It may be given on its own as one shot or in combination with other vaccines (e.g. Hepatitis B) as one shot.
When given on its own, two doses are usually required, one primary dose followed by a booster dose 6 to 18 months after.
When given in combination with Hepatitis B vaccine, two to three doses may be required depending on age. Consult your doctor for more details.
