The Jerusalem District Health Bureau has received a report regarding a hepatitis A patient who worked as a kitchen hand at the Eyal Hotel, 21 Shamai Street, Jerusalem.
The Ministry of Health calls upon all the hotel’s guests who ate breakfast between 18-May-14 and 23-May-14 who have not been vaccinated in the past against hepatitis A to visit their family physician and ask to be vaccinated against this disease. 
 
 
The time period during which the vaccine is still effective in preventing the illness is limited; it is therefore recommended to receive it as early as possible.
 
 
For details, it is possible to contact the Jerusalem District Health Bureau at telephone number 02-5314847.
