Florida faces hepatitis A emergency — and there's no end in sight
from Tampa Bay Times
Florida's ongoing hepatitis A epidemic has already far eclipsed state records, but people shouldn't expect the outbreak to end anytime soon, the state's surgeon general told lawmakers. Scott Rivkees, the newly installed head of the state's Department of Health, said that 3,009 cases of the virus have been reported this year as of Sept. 7, and that the state is still working to vaccinate hundreds of thousands of high-risk or medically vulnerable patients to curb the virus' spread.
