Hepatitis A outbreak
In early August 2019, Minnesota declared an outbreak of hepatitis A. Hepatitis A outbreaks have been occurring across the U.S. since late 2016.
People at highest risk in this outbreak are:
- People who use drugs (injection or non-injection)
- People experiencing homelessness or unstable housing
- People who are or have recently been incarcerated
The best way to prevent hepatitis A is to get vaccinated. If you have questions about what your health plan covers, call the Customer Services number on the back of your member identification (ID) card.
