What are the indications for hepatitis A vaccine? Evidence-Based Answer: Hepatitis A vaccination reduces infection rates by 90% to 95% (SOR: A, systematic review of RCTs). The vaccine prevents hepatitis A virus (HAV) when administered to children aged 12 to 23 months, to international travelers, and to healthcare workers (SOR: B, epidemiologic studies). It is also effective for postexposure prophylaxis (SOR: B, RCT).
