Hepatitis A, which is generally contracted orally through fecal contamination of food or water, is considered the least dangerous form of the disease because it almost always resolves on its own. Also, it does not lead to chronic inflammation of the liver.

Hepatitis A virus (HAV) is an RNA virus of a single serotype. Infection usually causes clinical hepatitis in adults and school-aged children but is often asymptomatic in younger children. Jaundice develops in < 10% of children 6 years and under. Typical symptoms of illness include anorexia, nausea, fatigue, fever and jaundice. The severity of the illness increases with age. Recovery often takes 4 to 6 weeks but may take months. Recurrent hepatitis for up to a year occurs in about 15% of cases, but longer chronic infection is not known to occur. About 25% of reported adult cases require hospitalization. Fulminant disease with liver necrosis is rare but can be fatal. Individuals with pre-existing chronic liver disease are at increased risk of serious complications from HAV infection. The overall estimated case fatality rate associated with hepatitis A is 0.1% to 0.3%, but this rises to 1.8% in persons over the age of 50. It reaches 12.5% in patients over the age of 60 who are hospitalized because of the disease. Not only this Hepatitis A virus infections are very common throughout the world. So common, in fact, that it is really easier to list the countries where you are unlikely to catch the infection than countries where you are likely to catch the infection. Also the United States still has about 3,000 cases of hepatitis A virus infections every year. Although hepatitis A virus infections do not cause long-term liver damage, still about 50 people die every year from severe, overwhelming infection with hepatitis A virus. Because the vaccine does not have serious side effects, the benefits of the vaccine clearly outweigh its risks.
