Rockland County Department of Health Warns of Possible Acute Hepatitis A Exposure at a Local Restaurant

A confirmed case of acute Hepatitis A has been identified in a food handler at the La Fontana restaurant in Nyack. Patrons and other employees may have been exposed to Hepatitis A virus between March 19 and April 1, 2014.

The Health Department will offer free Hepatitis A VACCINE TO RESTAURANT PATRONS AND EMPLOYEES STARTING Saturday April 12 from 11am – 5pm, Sunday April 13 from 11am to 3pm and Monday April 14 from 9am to 12pm at the Rockland County Fire Training Center, 35 Firemens Memorial Dr. in Pomona.

The Rockland County Department of Health is recommending that all people who ate at the restaurant on March 29, March 30 and April 1, 2014 receive Hepatitis A vaccine. Patrons who ate at the restaurant between March 19 and March 28 will not benefit from vaccination. In order for the vaccine to be most effective, people who have been exposed to Hepatitis A should be vaccinated within 14 days. The earlier the vaccine is given, the more effective it is in preventing the disease. In general, the vaccine is 80% to 90% effective.

Restaurant patrons may also receive vaccine at their medical provider’s office. People who were exposed but have already received two doses of Hepatitis A vaccine sometime in their life do not need another shot: all others should be vaccinated.
