A concession worker at Sandy Cinema was recently diagnosed with Hepatitis A, and Clackamas County has shared where vaccines are available for those potentially affected.

A male Sandy Cinema employee was working at the theater between February 12 and 15 during the afternoon and evening hours.

Heath workers are recommending that anyone who ate or drank at the concessions during that time should get a Hepatitis A vaccine.

Clackamas County Public Health posted locations you can get the vaccine in the area.

If you are unable to afford the vaccine or do not have insurance, the vaccine will be available at a public clinic Tuesday through Thursday from 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Legacy Medical Group Firwood.

Hepatitis A is a contagious viral disease of the liver, and typical symptoms include fatigue, fever, and loss of appetite, abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, or jaundice.

Symptoms usually develop 3-4 weeks after exposure, but it may be up to 50 days.
