Media Advisory: Close to 5000 people vaccinated - clinics to run until Friday
Today Toronto Public Health vaccinated approximately 3,500 people for Hepatitis
A at two clinics. This brings the total number of people vaccinated in two days
to almost 5,000.

Toronto Public Health will run vaccine clinics every day this week from 7:30
a.m. until 8 p.m.

Staff may stop taking new patients prior to 8 p.m. By 6 p.m. on Sunday and
Monday, staff stopped taking new patients in order to process residents already
waiting in line.

Wait times today varied between 90 minutes and two hours. Extra staff will be
working tomorrow to vaccinate as many people as possible.

The risk of getting Hepatitis A from eating raw fruit and vegetables consumed
at Loblaws, 3671 Dundas St. W. near Jane between July 19 and August 16, is low.

The public can call the Hepatitis A hotline for more information: 416-338-7600.
