7                Hepatitis A is an acute liver disease caused by the hepatitis A virus (HAV). The
8                symptoms of hepatitis A typically begin 25 to 30 days after infection with the virus
9                and include fever, tiredness, nausea, loss of appetite, abdominal pain, diarrhea and
10                jaundice. Adults and older children are more likely than young children to have symptoms
11                if infected. Hepatitis A usually resolves quickly and chronic infection does not occur.
12                HAV is found in the stool of persons with hepatitis A. Infected persons are most likely
13                to transmit HAV in the 2 weeks before the onset of their illness. HAV is most commonly
14                spread from one person to another, although outbreaks caused by contaminated food can occur.
15                In 1995, hepatitis A vaccine was licensed for use in the United States and since that time
16                the incidence of hepatitis A has fallen dramatically.
