Description:
Epidemiologic data for Minnesota on hepatitis A indicate differences in disease rates by county. MDH worked with local health departments and other health care providers to develop specific policies for hepatitis A prevention based on this local epidemiologic information.

In 2000, as an initial step, a "Hepatitis A Clinic Kit" and a parent brochure were developed to assist all Indian Health Service (IHS) clinics and tribal health clinics in developing pediatric hepatitis A vaccination programs. The clinic kit includes information about local disease rates, best practices of existing hepatitis A vaccination programs, disease report forms, sample standing orders, product inserts, and record keeping forms.
