AIDS Delaware to offer reduced fee vaccinations
The Center for Disease Control (CDC) and the Gay and Lesbian Medical Association (GLMA) recommend vaccinations for the prevention of Hepatitis A and B. Hepatitis A and B are two serious diseases which can produce symptoms such as nausea, fever, chills, loss of appetite, yellow skin, and years later, liver damage and even death. AIDS Delaware, in conjunction with GLMA, is offering reduced price Hepatitis A and B vaccinations at its Sussex County office at 706 Rehoboth Avenue in Rehoboth Beach, Saturday, Sunday, July 7 and 8, from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. The vaccinations will also be offered from AIDS Delaware's Bayshore Van for Life at North Shores Beach from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., and at Poodle Beach from 3 to 6 p.m. The Hepatitis program is funded by a grant from Glaxo Smith Kline Pharmaceuticals. No appointment is necessary. Protect yourself. If you are unable to receive a vaccination at the above locations, you should see your doctor about a vaccination. For a referral to a physician near you, call the AIDS Delaware Hotline at 800-422-0429. For more information about the Hepatitis A and B Vaccination program at AIDS Delaware, and the Bayshore Van for Life, please call Maureen Leary at (302) 236-9885.
