If you have eaten at these establishments, it’s crucial that you get a vaccination against this pathogenic virus within two weeks of exposure. The shots are only good within that time frame.
The first business is the Flash Market/Subway at 105 North Missouri Avenue in Corning. That person worked between March 30 and April 17, 2018. If you ate there before April 11, it’s too late for a shot. All you can do is monitor yourself for the symptoms of this illness and see your doctor if they appear.
So far this year, 12 cases of hepatitis A infections have been reported in Clay County. Four of those cases were in food service workers. So the ADH recommends that all food service workers in that area be vaccinated against the illness.
The second business is the Doublebee’s gas station at 1003 Highway 63 in Walnut Ridge. That person worked between April 7 and April 18, 2018. If you ate there before April 11, it’s too late for a vaccination. Watch yourself for the symptoms of a hepatitis A infection and see your doctor if you get sick.
