Health Department Warns Of Possible Hep A In Waldenburg

Ann Kenda
The Jordan's Kwik Stop on Rt. 49 in Waldenburg is the site of the latest possible Hepatitis A case in Northeast Arkansas

The Arkansas Department of Healh has advised customers who ate or drank at the Jordan's Kwik Stop at 7974 Highway 49 in Waldenburg in Poinsett County from March 14 -29 to consider getting a preventative vaccination, after an employee tested positive for Hepatitis A.  A shot can help stop the contagious liver disease from developing.

Free vaccines will be available from 7:30am to 5:30pm on Monday April 8 at the County Health Units in Harrisburg, Marked Tree and Trumann, and at the former Josie's Steak House building at 7974 Highway 49 in Waldenburg.

Hepatitis A scares have been occurring on a regular basis around Northeast Arkansas in restaurants and convenience stores since Feb. 2018.
