Hep A outbreak in Malaysia: Protect yourself with the Hep A vaccine!

There has recently been a report of an outbreak of Hep A in Terengganu, Malaysia.  If you are planning a trip to the region, please get yourself vaccinated with the Hep A vaccine.  You will need two jabs over six months, but even after the first jab, you will get 85% protection by 2 weeks and 100% protection by 3 weeks.

Hep A is easily contracted through exposure to contaminated food and water and is highly recommended for visitors planning to travel to regions like South East Asia and South Asia.

The Hep A vaccine is available at our clinic at $110 nett.
