Hepatitis A discovered at Quiznos in Downtown Crossing

What a way to start the week…

Boston public health officials yesterday urged hundreds of people who ate at a downtown franchise June 17, 18 or 19 to get inoculated for hepatitis A – a shot given in the backside – after a Quiznos worker was hospitalized with the liver disease.

A hospital reported the latest case to the city, which in turn alerted Quiznos after learning the patient worked at the 74 Summer St. franchise.

Although rarely fatal, hepatitis A causes nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, fever and fatigue. The virus has a 15-day incubation period.

Sure enough, I ate there on June 17th. I guess I’ll be dropping trou’ for an innoculation.
