More than 700 vaccines have been given to people who may have been exposed to the Hepatitis A virus in Caribou, Maine.

The Maine Center for Disease Control reports that people who ate at Burger Boy from April 24 through May 13 could have been exposed to the virus by a restaurant worker.

The Maine CDC alerted the public on Friday, May 17, after confirming the diagnosis.

Health officials said that the window is closing for the vaccine to be effective. Monday is the last day to get vaccinated for those who ate at the restaurant on May 13, the final day of the exposure window.

Vaccinations have been provided at Cary Medical Center and Pines Health Services.
