Abstract: 

Hepatitis A virus (HAV) is a common cause of hepatitis worldwide. The mode of transmission is generally person to person or by oral intake after fecal contamination of skin or mucous membranes; less commonly, there is fecal contamination of food or water. This infection is endemic in developing countries including Thailand (prevalence about 1.1% in general population) (1). One of the several risk groups is medical students who are exposed to this infection during their routine daily practice. Here, the author performed a study to assess the prevalence of medical students who were not sufficiently vaccinated against this occupationally relevant infectious disease in a Thai medical school using questionnaire survey.
