FREDONIA, N.Y. —Two more Hepatitis A vaccination clinics are planned this week after a potential exposure to the virus at a local restaurant.
Chautauqua County health officials say anyone who ate at the Mustard Seed in Fredonia between April 1 and May 19 may have been exposed and should consider getting vaccinated.
There is a clinic happening Tuesday, May 25 from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. at the Cassadaga Valley Central School bus garage. This will be a drive up clinic.
Another will be held Friday, May 28 from 3 p.m. to 7 pm at SUNY Fredonia Steele Hall.
Health officials say most people do not get sick when an employee at a restaurant has Hepatitis A, but there is still a risk. Symptoms include fever, loss of appetite and nausea. They also add that the vaccine is only effective within two weeks of exposure.
