(EVANSVILLE) - Customers of an Evansville, Indiana restaurant may have been exposed to Hepatitis A Virus.

Guests who visited a Lone Star Steakhouse in Evansville from April 20 to May 3, 2012, may have been exposed to the hepatitis A virus, following confirmation by State health officials of an infected restaurant worker. Anyone who visited the restaurant during that time is advised to get the hepatitis A vaccination as soon as possible.

Hepatitis A vaccine will be provided by the Vanderburgh County Health Department at 420 Mulberry Street in Evansville, Monday, May 14, through Thursday, May 17, 2012 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Central Daylight Time. Anyone who ate or drank at the Evansville Lone Star Steakhouse from April 30 to May 3, 2012 is currently eligible to receive vaccine at no cost. If you visited the restaurant during the dates noted, but are unable to travel to Evansville to receive the vaccine, please contact your local health department right away.

The hepatitis A vaccine must be received within 14 days of exposure to be effective. People seeking vaccination 14 or more days after exposure will not be vaccinated, but should instead monitor their health and seek medical attention if they develop symptoms.
