PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) — Another Philadelphia restaurant worker has been diagnosed with hepatitis A, and health officials are telling diners to get two shots of the vaccine. 

This time, patrons of Ristorante La Buca in Washington Square are being alerted.

If you ate at the restaurant at Seventh and Locust streets between Monday, Oct. 28 and lunchtime Friday Nov. 15, you might have been exposed. The risk of infection is low, but health officials say if you’ve never been vaccinated, play it safe and get the shots.
