Hep A: Hep a vaccination is not causing his vomiting. The vaccine causes minimal side effects.

See VIS: Here is the link to the vaccine information statement from the cdc: http://www.Cdc.Gov/vaccines/hcp/vis/vis-statements/hep-a.Html
as you can see, vomiting is not among the side effects listed. He may have a stomach virus or something he ate did not agree with him. Check with your doctor if the vomiting continues.
