As some of you may recall, I blogged about NYC's meningitis outbreak a while back. I've just received word from the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene that in spite of all best efforts, two new cases were reported—this time, they involved HIV-negative gay men in Brooklyn. Therefore, they've broadened their recommendations:

"The Health Department continues to recommend vaccinations for any New York City man who is HIV-positive and has had intimate contact with another man that he met through a Web site, digital application ('App') or at a bar or party since September 1, 2012.

"In addition, vaccinations are now advised for men, regardless of HIV status, who have had intimate contact with another man that he met through a Web site, digital application ('App') or at a bar or party since September 1, 2012 AND live in the following neighborhoods: Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brownsville, Bushwick, Clinton Hill, Crown Heights, Downtown Brooklyn, Dumbo, East New York, Prospect Heights and Williamsburg."

Stay vigilant about your health this holiday season!
