Hepatitis A Vaccination Clinic for Hamilton, NJ Residents

Mayor Kelly A. Yaede has announced a hepatitis A vaccination clinic for Hamilton, New Jersey residents after an employee at Rosa’s Restaurant and Catering was diagnosed with the illness. The restaurant is located on South Broad Street in Hamilton. Anyone who ate at the restaurant between November 10, 2014 and December 1, 2014 is urged to attend.

Hepatitis A CDCA hepatitis A or immune globulin vaccination is only good for two weeks after exposure, so if you visited that restaurant before November 19, 2014 they will not work. You need to monitor yourself for the symptoms of hepatitis A, which include fever, nausea, diarrhea, light colored stools, dark urine, yellow eyes and skin (jaundice), tiredness, loss of appetite, and abdominal cramps.

If you do experience these symptoms, see your doctor. Anyone with this infection is highly contagious. The first symptoms usually appear 15 to 50 days after exposure. Most people recover within a few weeks, but some people, particularly those with liver disease, become so ill they must be hospitalized.

The clinic will be held at the Colonial Volunteer Fire Company at 801 Kuser Road in Hamilton on Thursday, December 4, 2014 from 2:00 pm to 8:00 pm. It is open to Hamilton residents only. ID is required. Anyone above the age of 1 year can visit the clinic, but anyone below the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult. The cost of each vaccination will be $35. For questions, call the Hamilton Township Division of Health at 609-890-3884.
