In an article in The Daily Dot, a woman is notified that she needs to get a Hepatitis A vaccine after eating at a McDonald's in Vancouver, Canada.
A woman named Kristen shared a TikTok about her experience in McDonald's that eventually went viral.
Kristen happened to see an Instagram post from Vancouver Coastal Health advising that anyone who ate at a specific McDonald's restaurant in Vancouver between April 29 - May 9 should get a Hepatitis A vaccine due to potential exposure.
Hepatitis A is a liver infection that is spread by contaminated food or water or contact with someone that is infected.
The notice from Vancouver Health read,
Vancouver Coastal Health is notifying people who dined at McDonald's (3695 Lougheed Hwy, Vancouver) about a possible exposure to Hepatitis A
The notice did say that the risk of transmission was low but they still advised people to come forward.
A vaccine can help to prevent infection if given within two weeks of exposure. We are offering free immunization to anyone who dined at this restaurant from April 29 to May 9.
Kristen realized that she had eaten at that specific McDonald's sometime within the time frame that was listed on the notice.
In her video, she showed screenshots of her McDonald's order and the notices that she received from the immunization clinic.
After her video went viral, one commenter wrote,
“Thank you for your public service because I’ve just realised I’ve been exposed too,”
Although Kristen does not mention whether she really did receive the vaccine, she joked that she would "probably go back to McDonald's next week tbh, hahaha."
