Hepatitis A Shot
« on: June 15, 2008, 04:48:12 PM »
My doctor wants me to get a Hepatitis A shot.  I have already cured by myself from Hepatitis B.  I am take Reyatax, Norvir Triuvada.  T cells over 600 and % is 28.  I am in good health otherwise.  My doctor just told me to get it as a preventitive, one of my friends raised concerns if it was necesary.

Are there any side effects from getting this shot. ?   Anything I should be concerned about?

Thanks
Cityboy

The HAV vaccination is entirely safe and few side effects. Your most likely to have a bit of a sore arm afterwards. You should have it done.

Having my Hep A done in a couple of weeks, along with Typhoid and Tetnus for Mexico City so it's good to know there will be no side effects.

Hey, What are the side effects you are referring to?  Where is the best place to read about this?  Any other shots necessary.  I had the pneumonia shot done the second they tell me I am positive.

I had my hep A shot last month and didn't even get a sore arm.

For what it's worth, I'm on the same regimen and have also cleared hep B without medical assistance.

Well for most people there are none, really. You might get a sore arm, that's pretty much dependent on the skill of the one administering the injection. Rarely there can be some redness at the site.

Other vaccinations HIVers should consider include, annual FluVax, Adult Tetanus and Diptheria and so on. Your HIV specialist can give you the complete list.

Vaccines to avoid are those made from live, attenuated viruses including poliomyelitis, measles and some pneumonia shots. As always your HIV specialist will direct you appropriately.

Started getting Flu shot last year, did tetanus too.  Will ask about other shots.  I am no worried about a little pain in my arm or redness. 

Thank you Matty, I hope you are doing well :-)

Thanks for sharing that information.    When I was first diagnosed last year the doctor thought that I got Hep B which made an easier entry for HIV infection.

For what it's worth, I'm on the same regimen and have also cleared hep B without medical assistance.
