3,000 Hepatitis A Shots Given in Fayetteville North Carolina

The Cumberland County Health Department will offer hepatitis A vaccines for two hours Saturday for those who may have been exposed to the virus at the Olive Garden.

The clinic at 1235 Ramsey St. will be 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. for those who worked or dined at the North MacPherson Church Road restaurant on July 31. The clinic will resume normal hours Monday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. for those who ate there Aug. 1, 2 or 8.

Fort Bragg officials have also set up on-post screening clinics for soldiers and their families who may have been exposed to hepatitis A.

The vaccine is effective only within 14 days of infection. Those who dined or worked at the Olive Garden prior to July 31 should watch for signs of the illness and contact a doctor if they get sick.
