- The Florida Department of Health 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.
- In addition to testing adults of all ages at risk for hepatitis C virus infection, CDC recommends that baby boomers, those born between 1945 and 1965 get screened as well. Baby boomers are 5 times more likely to have hepatitis C than other adults.
All boys and girls starting at age 11 through age 26 should get vaccinated against HPV (human papillomavirus).
