Travel Advisory in Indiana

The hepatitis A outbreak in Michigan is leading to another state issuing a travel advisory.

Indiana’s Department of Health says people should get vaccinated for hepatitis A before they travel to Michigan or Kentucky.

There have been more than 800 cases of hepatitis A in Michigan since August 2016, along with 25 deaths.

Cases of the disease have been reported in Isabella and Grand Traverse counties, as well as in Clare, Leelanau, Mecosta and Newaygo counties.

Scary spread potential (and scary case fatality ratio)......
Quote You can spread the hepatitis A virus about 2 weeks before your symptoms appear and during the first week they show up
