WARNING!!! Meningitis Outbreak Strikes WeHo

We're sure you heard of the bacterial meningitis outbreak effecting the gay community in New York City this winter. As of this week, the outbreak has spread to the community (and community at large) in LA. Public health and West Hollywood officials are asking the public to be on the lookout for flu-like symptoms of meningococcal infection after a local man abruptly came down with meningitis and is now brain dead

This post to let others know. 
BeverlyNBCLA will have full details on the NBC4 News at 5 and 6 p.m. 

 Click here for NBC LA's story:

Equinox West Hollywood just sent out a notice to all of their members. This is NOT an STD (although transmission can and does occur that way). You can get bacterial meningitis the same way you would acquire a cold, although it is NOT airborne. So even if you’re in a committed relationship, you are potentially at risk. 

Cedars Sinai is offering the meningitis vaccine shot.



  1. Isn't this how AIDS first appeared? I bet this is a new AIDS super strain.

  2. Props to the LGBT Center for getting the vaccine available for those who can't afford it. They are offering it from 2-7 at the spot in WEHO this Monday. Nice Job!
