FORT WAYNE, Ind. (AP) -- Health officials say people who ate or drank at a Fort Wayne restaurant who have not already been vaccinated for hepatitis A should get the vaccination.
 
Allen County Health Commissioner Deborah McMahan tells The Journal Gazette (http://bit.ly/10F3n0M ) the vaccinations for patrons of 800 Degrees Three Fires restaurant on Illinois Road are a precautionary measure after a worker tested positive for hepatitis A. She says people who are having symptoms should seek medical attention.

The county is offering a free, drive-through clinic Saturday and Sunday for people who were at the restaurant between May 18 and May 26 and have not already been vaccinated. The clinic is being held at the Southwest Allen County Schools Transportation Center.
 
Symptoms may include fever, fatigue, dark-colored urine, poor appetite, nausea, stomach pain and jaundice.
