Adult Vaccination and Testing Program
The Florida Hepatitis Prevention Program recommends hepatitis A and hepatitis B vaccines, as well as hepatitis B and C testing for adults at increased risk for hepatitis infection, or the serious consequences of infection.The vaccines and laboratory testing are available for Florida residents 18 and older, and may be offered at no charge in your area.The Florida Hepatitis Prevention Program provides funding to fifteen counties (Alachua, Bay, Broward, Collier, Duval, Escambia, Lee, Miami-Dade, Monroe, Okeechobee, Orange, Palm Beach, Pinellas, Polk and Seminole) for the provision of hepatitis services to residents at increased risk for hepatitis A, B and/or C. Components of these services may include: a) screening and testing for chronic hepatitis B and C; b) immunization against hepatitis A and B; c) targeted interventions; d) epidemiologic investigations; e) education of the public and health care providers; f) enhanced surveillance. Funding varies from county to county, so services may not be the same amongst all counties.
For more information about hepatitis vaccine, contact your local health department through the county health department locator on the Florida Department of Health's website.
