New York City health officials are urging some men to get vaccinated against meningitis amid an outbreak that has sickened 22 New Yorkers and killed seven.
The dangerous strain of bacterial meningitis appears to be spreading through sexual encounters between men who meet through websites or smartphone apps, or at bars or parties, according to the Citys health department. More than half of the infected men have had HIV, a virus that attacks the immune system making infections more likely and more severe.
Vaccination is the best defense, City health commissioner Dr. Thomas Farley said in a statement. I urge all men who meet these criteria regardless of whether they identify as gay to get vaccinated now and protect themselves from this disease before it is too late.

get vaccinated now and protect themselves from this disease before it is too late.

Lets ban guns and 16oz slurpys!

Bastardizing our language is a BIG part of how we've devolved from D-Day to USSA.
Yes, and I understand CVS and others are demanding their employees disclose their weight and blood glucose levels on a WebMD site or else pay an extra $600/yr in health benefits. But they wouldn’t DARE demand their workers disclose any high risk sexual behaviors, whether they’re gay, straight or switch hitters, engage in.
Hmmm, perhaps a common thread here.
Oh yeah, that’s it.
Hey Bloomdork, why doncha ban gays and save far more lives than with your idiotic sugar ban?

Millions of Bats have been dying from White-Nose Syndrome...... hmmmm... having sex with bats?? Seems they would bite.
God’s way of saying, “Bad idea, dude.”
God will not be mocked.
