Portugal has registered 471 cases of Hepatitis A since the beginning of the year, more than 30 of which were caught during this past month.

The vast majority of cases were reported by men in Lisbon and caught via sexual contagion.
Following an outbreak of hepatitis A in April, Portugal upped its prevention campaign with vaccinations ahead of the summer festival season.
Around 3,000 vaccinations have been administered in Lisbon since April.
