There's chance that you've been exposed to Hepatitis A if you've purchased fruit from the Westide Market on the Upper West Side this month. Per the Department of Health, chopped fruit sold at the market or ordered through catering between Aug. 9 and Aug. 22 might have been contaminated. 

A Westside Market employee was diagnosed with Hepatitis A recently. In response, the store underwent and extensive cleaning and asked workers to get vaccinated and take a leave of absence if they thought they had been exposed. No cases of the illness have been reported so far.

Below are days and times where the Department of Health is conducting free vaccinations at MS 258: Community Action School (154 West 93rd St.):

Today, August 23: 2 p.m. - 8 p.m.
Saturday, August 24: 10 a.m. - 2 p.m.
Sunday, August 25: 2 p.m. - 6 p.m.
Monday, August 26: 2 p.m. - 8 p.m.
