State officials recommend hepatitis, other vaccines

first_imgIndianapolis, In. — Since November 2017, the Indiana State Department of Health (ISDH) has been investigating an outbreak of acute hepatitis A virus (HAV). Cases have been infected with HAV strains genetically linked to outbreaks across the United States. Indiana has an average of 20 cases of hepatitis A per 12 month period.Indiana is one of 10 states experiencing a hepatitis A outbreak, and outbreak-related cases have been confirmed across the state. Information on other outbreaks can be accessed from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website. Transmission is presumed to occur person to person; no contaminated commercial food product has been identified. Based on CDC guidelines, populations who are homeless, transient, incarcerated or use illicit drugs and their close direct contacts are considered at increased risk of exposure to hepatitis A.To reduce the risk of hepatitis A transmission, people who have not received two doses of hepatitis A vaccine may ask their health care providers for protection. Additionally, always wash your hands with soap and water after going to the bathroom, after changing diapers and before preparing meals for yourself and others. Do not attend work or school if you are experiencing symptoms of hepatitis A, which include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, loss of appetite, tiredness, stomach ache, fever, dark-colored (cola) urine, light-colored stool and jaundice (yellowing of skin and eyes). Symptoms may take as many as 50 days from exposure to appear.As families prepare for the 2018-19 school year it’s important to check vaccination records. Recommended guidelines are here.last_img read more

Liverpool star rules out summer exit

first_imgDivock Origi has admitted that is happy at Liverpool and wants to remain at the club and develop under Jurgen Klopp’s charge. Loading… Origi also revealed what it felt like to score a Champions League final winning goal, adding: “I took a lot of pleasure from that moment. It was a very calm moment. “I was able to connect with the supporters. I saw their facial expressions. It is a feeling that is very difficult to explain. “[Andy] Robertson jumped on my back, Fabinho joined and Virgil [van Dijk]. Unbelievable. “The more days pass, the more I can enjoy it. It’s like wine, it matures with time.” Meanwhile, Kylian Mbappe is said to be considering a massive new PSG deal that would reportedly put him on the same salary tier as £600,000-a-week Neymar. read also:Liverpool closing in on £110m double deal for Lille’s Soumare, Osimhen The hottest property in world football has been strongly linked with moves to both Liverpool and Real Madrid this summer, but it appears that the French giants are ready to throw their financial might at the 21-year-old in an effort to make him stay. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 The Belgian international striker signed a long-term deal last summer, following his crucial goals throughout the 2018/19 campaign. Origi scored the all-important Anfield brace which helped down Barcelona in the semi-final of the Champions League last year, and it was his strike against Tottenham which sealed Liverpool’s sixth title in Madrid back in June. Speaking to Het Laatste Nieuws, as cited by Goal, the 25-year-old admitted he wants to keep improving at Anfield and is not interested in looking for a regular starting job elsewhere – despite Liverpool’s links to the likes of Kylian Mbappe and Timo Werner. “I am a better player than last year,” the forward explained. “Klopp has given me the space to develop myself. “I always listen to my instinct and continue to work. We have spoken with Liverpool and we have a nice course ahead of us. I just want to get better here. “It is a project for me and I want to follow it. I don’t know how long I will do that. I feel that I am making progress, so it was a pity that the season stopped [due to coronavirus].” Promoted Content10 Risky Jobs Some Women Do14 Hilarious Comics Made By Women You Need To Follow Right NowTop 7 Best Car Manufacturers Of All TimeWho Is The Most Powerful Woman On Earth?6 Incredibly Strange Facts About Hurricanes6 Extreme Facts About HurricanesA Hurricane Can Be As Powerful As 10 Atomic Bombs7 Ways To Understand Your Girlfriend BetterBirds Enjoy Living In A Gallery Space Created For ThemA Rihanna Museum Is Probably Opening SoonThe Best Cars Of All TimeLil Nas X Is About To Beat A World Record!last_img read more
