According to reports, anyone who ate at a Turnersville Dunkin’ Donuts between May 18 and June 1 is urged by health officials to get vaccinated after a sick employee tested positive for hepatitis A. 

Though the possibility of infection is small, health officials say that customers who ate or drank anything from the store should be vaccinated if they haven’t been already.
