Just found this forum and have had this nagging at me for a long time. Before the kids head off to highschool, they give them a hepatitis vaccine. It is optional of course which confused me even more. Everyone in my kids class had it done and so did mine. Then I thought well if every kids getting the vaccine then the hepatitis isn't going to be around so maybe my kid doesn't need it. I have more children and I don't know if I want to do the same thing with them. The nurses said if a kid is sexually active in highschool they can catch it and possibly die. This scared everyone, but again I thought if everyone is vaccinated maybe I should skip. To top it off my kid had mono eight months before and I wondered about the liver. At the same time I talked to a specialist about the liver and he said
go ahead. Any ideas?
