Oakland County, MI health officials issued a public health advisory Friday after an employee of Red Lobster in Novi tested positive for hepatitis A.
Guests who consumed food from the restaurant between Jan. 14 – Feb. 14 may have been exposed to hepatitis A.
“Vaccination can prevent the disease if given within 14 days after potential exposure,” said Kathy Forzley, director of health & human services for Oakland County. “If you have eaten at this location during these dates and have not been vaccinated for hepatitis A or have a sudden onset of any symptoms, contact your doctor.”
The next special Hepatitis A vaccine clinic will be held Monday, Feb. 19, 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. at 1010 E. West Maple Road in Walled Lake in the Easterseals office.
The hepatitis A vaccine is also available through some healthcare providers and many pharmacies.
