Editor’s note: this press release was provided by Terry Clements, 11th District Legislator

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

To help protect themselves and the people they serve and care for, the Westchester County Department of Health encourages restaurant and childcare workers to register for a free Hepatitis A vaccine at one of two County clinics, to be held Saturday and Tuesday in White Plains.

Clinic hours are Saturday, Aug. 11, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Tuesday, Aug. 14, 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. at 134 Court St., White Plains. To schedule an appointment, go towww.health.ny.gov/gotoclinic/60.

Hepatitis A is a highly contagious liver infection that can spread when a person who is infected with the virus fails to practice good hand hygiene after using the toilet, and then handles food and beverages served to others. A person who is infected can spread the virus without being aware of his or her infection.

Anyone who gets a first Hepatitis A vaccine at these clinics will need a second dose of vaccine at least six months later. Those who do not have health insurance coverage for this vaccine can make an appointment for the second dose at a Westchester County immunization clinic.

Sincerely,

Terry Clements
