The last Hepatitis A immunization clinics for Okotoks residents is open Wednesday, January 3.

The clinic will be held at the Okotoks Health and Wellness Centre until 4 p.m.

Alberta Health Services is holding the clinic after discovering a food handler at the Okotoks Safeway was confirmed to have Hepatitis A, and residents who consumed donuts from the bulk bins from Friday, December 1 through to Thursday, December 21 may have been exposed.

Immunizations will be offered to people who consumed the donuts between Tuesday, December 19 and the 21st, as immunization is only effective within two weeks of exposure.

Those who consumed the donuts between December 1st and 19th are asked to monitor themselves for possible signs of Hepatitis A.

Alberta Health Services asks anyone who believes they may have been exposed to contact Health Link at 811 for assessment of exposure date before going to the clinic.
