Possible hepatitis A exposure at Indy Burger KingFebruary 1, 2019
By The Associated Press
INDIANAPOLIS — Recent customers of a Burger King restaurant on Indianapolis’ south side may have been exposed to hepatitis A and should be vaccinated against the virus by Monday.
The Marion County Public Health Department says the warning applies to customers of the Burger King on South Kentucky Avenue on Jan. 21-24. It did not say how customers might have been exposed.
Hepatitis A inflames the liver and is spread by fecal-oral transmission. Symptoms include vomiting, abdominal pain, fever and jaundice.
Vaccine given within two weeks of exposure to the virus can prevent the disease.
The health department will offer the vaccine for free during a clinic Monday from 11 a.m.-7 p.m. at its South District Health Office, 7551 S. Shelby St. The vaccine also is available through doctor’s offices and pharmacies.
