Indiana’s Fort Wayne-Allen County Department of Health has obtained more hepatitis A vaccine after depleting its supply by recently administering free vaccinations to more than 1,100 individuals. The department arranged the special weekend vaccination program after a restaurant worker tested positive for hepatitis A. Health officials announced that more vaccine had arrived and would be given by appointment. The department advises customers who bought food at the restaurant between May 18 and May 26 to get the vaccination.
