Beginning Wednesday Morning, the Mecklenburg County Health Department will start giving out shots to the hundreds of customers who may have been exposed to Hepatitis A at two popular restaurants.
An employee who works at the Whiskey Warehouse and The Hooters in Concord contracted Hepatitis A. Now, the Mecklenburg County Health Dept is warning customers who ate or drank at either restaurant during certain times that they could have been exposed to the disease.
Health officials say anyone who ate at the Hooters on Feb. 7 or 8 between 10:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. may have been exposed.
People who ate or drank at Whiskey Warehouse on Feb. 6 between 5:30 and 7:30 p.m., Feb. 9 after 4:30 p.m., or Feb. 13 between 7 and 8:30 p.m. are also at risk.
Managers at Whiskey Warehouse say the employee will not be allowed back at work until she's cured. They say the safety of their customers and employees is their first priority.
If you've eaten at one of those restaurants at those times -- it's important to get the vaccine immediately. It's only good if you get it within 14 days of the infection.
