Hep A reported at Seymour restaurant

The Jackson County Health Department will be conducting a Hepatitis A vaccination clinic on Wednesday after a case was reported at a fast food establishment in Seymour.

Officials say that while it is relatively rare for restaurant patrons to become infected, the Health Department is offering this vaccine to anyone who visited Taco Bell’s drive through on November 13th or 14th. Only those who consumed food or drink via the drive through are eligible for the vaccine. Individuals may also obtain Hep A vaccines from their personal health care provider or pharmacy.

Wednesday’s clinic will be held from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the American Legion, located at 400 W Second Street in Seymour.

Along with the special clinic, the Health Department has established an information call-line at (812) 569-0854.
