Health officials on Wednesday recommended that men in Florida who have sex with other men get a meningococcal vaccine following what the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention called
"one of the worst outbreaks of meningococcal disease among gαy and bisɛҳuąƖ men in U.S. history."
The CDC said in a statement that there have been at least 24 cases and seven deaths among gαy and bisɛҳuąƖ men caused by the bacteria in Florida
recently. The CDC also recommended that gαy and bisɛҳuąƖ men traveling to Florida should ask their health care provider about getting the vaccine
"Because of the outbreak in Florida, and the number of Pride events being held across the state in coming weeks, it's important that gαy and bisɛҳuąƖ men who live in Florida get vaccinated, and those traveling to Florida talk to their healthcare provider about getting a MenACWY vaccine," said José Romero, director of the National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases.https://www.cbsnews.com/amp/news/meningococcal-disease-outbreak-florida-7-deaths-cdc/#app
