多伦多联合车站一餐馆雇员患甲肝 多伦多卫生局为在此餐馆用过餐的市民提供免费疫苗注射

Toronto Public Health is advising anyone who consumed food or beverages at the Calii Love kiosk located at Union Station between May 14 and 29, and on June 8 and 9, between the hours of 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. on any of these dates, that they may have been exposed to hepatitis A. 

An employee of the restaurant has a confirmed case of hepatitis A that was likely acquired during travel to another country. While the risk of getting the infection through consuming food from this kiosk is low, individuals who visited this restaurant during those dates and times should watch for signs and symptoms and practise thorough hand washing. 

Toronto Public Health will be holding free hepatitis A vaccination clinics for anyone who consumed food at this restaurant on June 8 and 9 between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. The hepatitis A vaccine is most effective when received within 14 days of exposure. Those individuals who may have been exposed more than 14 days ago should watch for signs and symptoms of hepatitis A and seek medical attention should any symptoms develop. Symptoms can begin 15 to 50 days after becoming infected.

Vaccination clinics will be held at the rotunda of Metro Hall, 55 John St., on the following two days this week:
• Wednesday, June 13 from 3 to 7 p.m. 
• Thursday, June 14 from noon to 6 p.m. 

Hepatitis A is a virus that can cause liver infection. Symptoms can last a few days to several months. Most people who are infected recover completely. It is also possible to be infected and not have any symptoms. For symptomatic individuals, the severity of symptoms can range from mild to severe. 

Common symptoms of hepatitis A include fever, tiredness, loss of appetite, nausea/vomiting, dark urine, stomach pains and jaundice (yellowing of the skin). 

Hepatitis A can be avoided by getting the hepatitis A vaccine, not handling or preparing food for anyone if you are ill and washing your hands often and thoroughly using soap and warm water. This is especially important after using the washroom, changing a diaper and before preparing or eating food. Always wash fresh fruits and vegetables. If you are travelling, especially outside of North America, be sure the water supply is safe before drinking it and use caution when consuming ice. 

If you are concerned that you may have acquired hepatitis A or have questions about getting the vaccine, contact Toronto Public Health at 416-338-7600 or speak with your primary care provider as soon as possible. A fact sheet on hepatitis A is available at https://www.toronto.ca/community-people/health-wellness-care/diseases-medications-vaccines/hepatitis-a-fact-sheet/.
