The Salt Lake Valley Health Department is issuing a Hepatitis A health alert for people who ate at a Salt Lake City Quizno’s restaurant on August 6 or 7. Patrons of the Quizno’s at 30 East Broadway (300 South) on August 6 or 7 are urged to get an injection of immune globulin (IG) or hepatitis A vaccine as soon as possible. Vaccinations will be available at the Salt Lake Valley Health Department City Clinic at 621 South 200 East on Thursday, August 19 until 5:00 p.m., Friday, August 20 from 8:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. or Saturday, August 21 from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
People who ate at the restaurant between July 27 and August 5 may also have been exposed, but would not benefit from immunizations, as the shots must be given within 14 days of exposure. Those individuals should watch for signs of hepatitis A, which include nausea, vomiting, dark urine and jaundice, and contact their health care providers if they become sick.
