ROME, N.Y. – After an overwhelming turnout on Tuesday, Rome Memorial Hospital is moving Thursday’s hepatitis A vaccination clinic to the Mohawk Valley Community College Rome campus on Bell Road.

During Tuesdays clinic, 400 people were immunized in less than two hours.

The hospital has another 650 adult doses and 100 pediatric doses for the drive-thru, which will be held from noon to 4 p.m. on May 14.

The hospital and the Oneida County Health Department are offering this vaccination clinic after an employee at LaRoma Pizzeria on Floyd Avenue tested positive for hepatitis A.

Anyone who ordered from the restaurant’s Rome location between April 27 and May 4, or the Camden location from April 30 to May 1 may have been exposed.

The vaccinations must be administered with 14 days of exposure.

Anyone who did not get vaccinated in that time frame should monitor for symptoms, such as yellow skin or eyes, not wanting to eat, upset stomach, stomach pain, throwing up, fever, dark urine or light-colored stools, joint pain, diarrhea, feeling tired.
