Springfield, IL -(Effingham Radio)- Illinois is hoping to get ahead of the same kind of Hepatitis A outbreaks that some of our neighbors are dealing with.
The entire state of Illinois last week launched a vaccination effort.
Both Michigan and Kentucky are in the middle of a Hep A outbreak that has seen hundreds of people get sick.
The Illinois Department of Public Health is encouraging anyone who does drugs or sleeps with someone who does drugs to get a vaccination.
