Where’s a guy gotta go to get a HepA Shot?

marykbaird_P1020418.jpgKen Levine had an interesting post yesterday.

After attending the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue party … you know the one that was catered by Wolfgang Puck, Levine thought it was best to get a Hepatitis A shot (not his first, apparently).

And of course the word comes to him that he’d been exposed at the very end of the 14 day period when the shot may actually prevent infection. So where in Los Angeles do you actually go to get the shot within the next 24 hours? Apparently it’s not carried at every doctor’s office or hospital like you might think.

  1. Hep Team LA sometimes offers free vaccinations (which, by the way, is a multi-shot, multi-step process. They offer a list of private providers who “stock hepatitis vaccines and will be accepting new patients for hepatitis vaccination as part of the Hep Team LA program.” I’d call ahead to find out the details, but dropping the Hep Team LA name may mean “free”. At the very least, the following people should have some answers:
