Abstract

TA cluster of hepatitis A cases in the Orthodox Jewish community in London, United Kingdom in July 2010 has triggered extensive contact tracing and vaccination. Two primary cases imported from a common source in Israel and three secondary cases have resulted in immunisation of over 900 contacts to date. Rapid response by local public health, primary care services and a dedicated community health team, and active hepatitis A vaccination rather than immunoglobulin treatment were used to avert a larger outbreak.
