Hepatitis A Exposure at Buffalo Wild Wings, Vincennes

Customers who ate at the Vincennes Buffalo Wild Wings restaurant on June 30th and July 1st are being encouraged to get a Hepatitis A shot due to an employee being infected with the virus.

Madeline Moon, a Health Inspector for the Knox County Health Department, says a vaccination clinic is scheduled for Friday at the Knox County Health Department’s Immunization Clinic at 305 South 5th Street for those with potential exposure to Hepatitis A on those dates.

The vaccine must be administered within two weeks after the last day of exposure.

If you have already been vaccinated within the last 10 years you do not need to be re-vaccinated.

A hotline has been established at the Knox County Health Department to answer questions that individuals may have, 812-885-8413.

Those who can’t attend the vaccination clinics during the scheduled times should contact their personal medical provider or contact local pharmacies for vaccine availability.
