Hepatitis A exposure prompts vaccination clinics in Penn Yan

  • Staff Report 

Yates County Public Health has announced a free vaccination clinic following a hepatitis A exposure linked to a restaurant employee at Main Deck in Penn Yan.

The employee’s positive test prompted health officials to recommend that diners between March 27 and April 12 receive treatment to prevent infection.

The clinic is set for Thursday, April 18 at the county office building, with appointments available online.


Health officials say the risk of contracting hepatitis A from the incident remains low. However, precautionary measures are crucial.

The vaccine is effective only within two weeks of exposure, hence urgency for those who visited the restaurant from April 4 to 12 to get vaccinated immediately.
