  • Hepatitis A
  • Contraindications & Precautions

Can HepA vaccine be given to immunocompromised people?

Yes. All people age 1 year or older living with HIV infection should be vaccinated against hepatitis A if they have not been vaccinated, regardless of their CD4+ count.

If any immunocompromised person has a risk factor that places them at increased risk of hepatitis A (e.g., international travel, drug use), they should be vaccinated with HepA vaccine.
