Request to Health Care Providers: Hepatitis A Vaccination in Emergency Health Care Settings to Prevent Outbreaks in Wisconsin

Because the current outbreaks of HAV are predominantly impacting communities with identifiable risk factors, including unstable housing, recent incarceration and injection drug use, targeted efforts to vaccinate high-risk individuals could substantially reduce the risk of HAV outbreaks in the state. Emergency departments are a critically important partner for providing HAV vaccine to patients in need because they provide care for many high risk individuals who do may not seek routine preventive care elsewhere.
