CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- More than 1,000 people have been vaccinated against hepatitis A after a Charlotte pizza place employee was hospitalized with the disease, according to health officials.

Health officials in Mecklenburg and Cabarrus counties are urging anyone who ordered or ate a pizza from the Papa John's on Cambridge Commons Drive between March 28 and April 7 to get the vaccine.

Free clinics have been giving shots throughout the weekend, and health officials say they have already vaccinated more than 1,000 people.

Hepatitis A is a virus that attacks the liver and can cause nausea, vomiting and jaundice.

Officials estimate 2,400 customers ordered pizza during the period.

The restaurant has been thoroughly cleaned and remains open.
