Hepatitis A is a vaccine-preventable illness that attacks the liver and can cause symptoms of abdominal pain, nausea, dark urine, and yellow skin and eyes. It’s spread when people do not wash their hands well after using the bathroom and then touch objects or prepare food for others. It’s also spread through sexual contact and drug use. Marion County is continuing to see an increase in cases of hepatitis A locally and encourages residents to get vaccinated for the virus.
Event Starts: 10:00 AM
