Affected Patrons Dinning at the West Village Restaurant to get Free Hepatitis A Vaccination

Affected Patrons Dinning at the West Village Restaurant to get Free Hepatitis A VaccinationAn urge has been made by city health authorities to the West Village restaurant to be vaccinated with Hepatitis A vaccination.  The warning comes as a wake of a previous finding where a food handler at the Alta restaurant on West 10th Street was facing the symptoms of the disease after returning from a trip to Mexico.

As suggested by the health officials, people who dined at the restaurant between March 23 and April 2 should get themselves vaccine for preventing the disease. However, the restaurant continues its services.

Manny Solano, the manager of Alta, said that inspections were made by the health department followed by a green signal by them to continue the services of the restaurant.

One of the people, who dined, said that the incident had left him in a state of shock as he love the restaurant and is a regular customer. He said that he has been fond of the services provided at the restaurant and also had recommended it to many.

Another person said that the restaurant authorities told the reason of closing the bakery to be the poor outage. They never revealed that it was closed because of Hepatitis A. The Health Department of the Ney York City will be providing the people, who dined in the restaurant between the suspected dates, with Hepatitis A vaccinations at the Chelsea Health Center.

The affected people need to make a call on 311 for getting the services.
