Public health officials in Huron-Perth are holding a pair of vaccination clinics for Hepatitis A this week. 

It follows messaging from the Public Health Agency of Canada on an outbreak of infections in Quebec and Nova Scotia. 

A statement from the PHAC said, "Based on the investigation findings to date, exposure to frozen mangoes has been identified as a likely source of the outbreak."

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency issued a recall for various frozen mangoes, distributed in several provinces including Ontario. 

As a precaution, Huron Perth Public Health is holding two free clinics for anyone who consumed the affected products in the last 14 days. 

One is happening Monday from noon until 4 p.m. at 653 Gore Street in Stratford, while the other is happening Tuesday in Clinton between the same hours.
