Prevention

The best way to prevent a hepatitis E infection is to avoid contaminated water, especially when traveling in countries where hepatitis E is common.

Currently, there is no approved vaccine for hepatitis E, though a promising candidate developed in part by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases has been successful in clinical trials.
