Central District Health is offering the vaccine for free to anyone who may have been exposed between July 24 and Aug 7.

The Idaho Press reports, no related infections have been reported.

Idaho earlier this year started to see a hepatitis A outbreak, and neighboring counties including Canyon, Blaine and Twin Falls have also seen a recent increase in hepatitis A cases.
