There has been a recent outbreak of hepatitis A in Victoria.
Anyone can contract hepatitis A, however this particular outbreak presents the highest risk to people who inject drugs and to gay, bisexual and other MSM people.
A free, two-dose course of the hepatitis A vaccine is now available at cohealth for all MSM people living in Victoria and people who inject drugs and live in Victoria. The free vaccine can be accessed at cohealth medical clinics up until 31 December 2018.
cohealth clinics are located in Melbourne’s inner north and western suburbs. To make an appointment go to www.cohealth.org.au/doctors and contact us at your preferred location.
