Reminder: Get Your Second Dose of the Hepatitis A Vaccine
Monday, September 24, 2018
KentuckyOne Health - Louisville Market
For many employees who received the Hepatitis A vaccine at the peak of the community outbreak, the second dose, of the two shot series, will be due soon. The second dose should be given six months after the first dose to be 100% protected.
We strongly encourage all employees to be vaccinated against Hepatitis A. Most insurance covers the Hepatitis A vaccine as a preventative benefit 100% covered. The vaccine can be given at a primary care physician’s office or at most major pharmacies and retail clinics including our KMG Urgent Care location at 908 DuPont Road in St. Matthews.
In addition, employee health has obtained additional Hepatitis A vaccines and is offering the vaccine to all KentuckyOne employees during regular office injection times. If you received the first dose outside of the employee health office, the second dose cannot be provided until documentation of the first dose is received.
As always, please make sure to provide documentation of your vaccinations to the employee health for your employee file if you receive the vaccine at another location.
