Hepatitis test, vaccine made compulsory for bakeries, restaurants employees in Cantt

Rawalpindi Cantonment Board has made hepatitis A, B and C tests and vaccine injections compulsory for employees working in bakeries, restaurants and other shops and factories dealing in edibles.
According to sources, the Cantt Board decided to issue licences to shops and factory owners who obtained a hepatitis negative report from the Cantonment General Hospital. The board started sending notices to owners of bakeries, restaurants, meat shops, milk shops, grocery shops and shops of other eatables in this regard.
Cantt Board Executive Officer Rana Manzoor Ahmed Khan took notice of the carelessness of concerned authorities and shopkeepers regarding hygiene. As a result the Food Department In-charge Ghulam Rasul Satti made teams to inspect shops, bakeries and restaurants.
Employees have been queuing outside the Cantonment General Hospital to get hepatitis tests and vaccinations against the disease.
