Spanish soccer star Sisi sidelined with hepatitis A

It’s Oscar time and I can’t wait to see which celebrities have to get vaccinated for hepatitis A this year after the parties. But until Sunday, soccer seems to be the source of reminders to get vaccinated against hepatitis A, which is transmitted via human poop.
RC Recreativo de Huelva are set to be without Spain Under-21 midfielder Sisi (right) for at least the next six weeks after the 22-year-old was diagnosed with hepatitis A.
Sisi is not the first U21 international to contract hepatitis A this year. Germany's Ashkan Dejagah was diagnosed with the same condition in early February and his club – VfL Wolfsburg – are resigned to losing him for a "very long time".
