Instead of going after stop and frisk, maybe we could address immigration from 3rd world nations with non-existent health programs? [h=1]NYC market patrons warned of hepatitis A exposure[/h] NEW YORK â€” The New York City Health Department is urging people who ate chopped, ready-to-eat fruit at an Upper West Side market in Manhattan to get a hepatitis A vaccination as a precautionary measure. Health officials said Thursday a food handler at Westside Market on Broadway between 97th and 98th streets contracted hepatitis A. There are no current reports of hepatitis A in customers. Hepatitis A is a contagious liver disease that can last from a few weeks to a several months. A vaccination can prevent illness if given within two weeks of exposure. People can get a vaccination from their regular doctor. The Health Department will also offer free hepatitis A vaccinations starting Friday at M.S. 258 at 154 West 93rd Street.
