In April, a Papa John’s worker at the store’s Cambridge Commons Drive location had hepatitis A. After the discovery, Cabarrus and Mecklenburg counties vaccinated thousands of customers.
On May 20 Cabarrus County Health Alliance sent a certified letter to Papa John’s asking to be paid back, saying the vaccinations cost them $22,777.
WSOC anchor Scott Wickersham called Papa John’s corporate office in Kentucky on Tuesday. The restaurant claimed it never got that letter.
“While we have not yet received any formal request for reimbursement, Papa John’s will reimburse the county for all reasonable costs incurred in successfully responding to this incident,” said a company spokesman.
