For Immediate Release
Two more days for no-cost Hepatitis A vaccinations
People who fear they may have been exposed to Hepatitis A from a local restaurant have two more days to receive vaccinations at no cost.
On Monday, vaccinations will be available from noon to 4 at:
- Mercy's urgent care at the Smith Glynn Callaway building at 3231 S. National Ave.
- Cox's urgent care at the Turner Center at 1000 E. Primrose.
On Tuesday, May 27, the health department will administer vaccines from 7:30 a.m. to 10 a.m. at the department’s Westside Public Health Center.
On May 20, health department officials learned of an individual who had tested positive for Hepatitis A. After learning that individual was a food service worker at the local Red Robin restaurant, department leadership decided to alert the public out of an abundance of caution.
Individuals potentially exposed to the Hepatitis A virus dined at the restaurant between May 8 and 16.
