An employee of the Miami Township Taco Bell restaurant, which is located at 889 State Route 28 in Milford, Ohio has been diagnosed with hepatitis A, according to Clermont County Public Health. That employee worked at that restaurant on August 15, 16, and 17, 2018.
It’s still early enough that anyone who ate at that restaurant on those days can get a hepatitis A or immune globulin vaccination to prevent this illness. The type of vaccination given depends on several factors, including the age of the patient and their health. For instance, anyone who has chronic liver disease or is immunocompromised would receive the immune globulin vaccine. These vaccines are only effective if given within two weeks of exposure to the pathogenic virus.
