Question: 

My children being vaccinated for Hepatitis A prior to a trip to Mexico in July. husband and I have both been vaccinated preivously, around 15 years ago - are we still covered?

Answer: 

The hepatitis A vaccine is routinely given as a series of two doses.  Booster doses of the hepatitis A vaccine are not recommended at this time.  If you are traveling, it is recommended that you follow up with your health care provider or local travel clinic for travel vaccine recommendations.
