Hepatitis C Screenings

IF YOU WERE BORN BETWEEN 1945 - 1965 YOU ARE FIVE TIMES MORE LIKELY TO HAVE HEPATITIS C!

Hepatitis C is a potentially life-threatening disease caused by a virus that attacks the liver. It is contracted through blood-to-blood contact with an infected person which can happen in a variety of different ways. Hepatitis C often has no symptoms until it reaches an advanced stage so you may not be aware that you have the disease.

The reason that people born between 1945–1965 have high rates of hepatitis C is not completely understood. The CDC Website reports that most baby boomers are believed to have become infected in the 1960s through the 1980s when transmission of hepatitis C was highest. 

The good news is that all it takes is a blood test to find out if you have Hepatitis C and according to the FDA most cases of Hepatitis C can be cured with a daily combination of pills over a period of just 12 weeks.

FOR A LIMITED TIME, FREE FIRST-TIME HEPATITIS C SCREENINGS ARE AVAILABLE NOW!
