Health Alert Read
Health alert in response to a recent outbreak of meningococcal meningitis among men who have sex with men (MSM). Meningococcal meningitis is spread by close contactâ€”this includes kissing and other sexual activity, but also sharing utensils or drinking glasses or cigarettes.
The Boston Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence and the Provincetown Bears strongly encourage anyone attending Bear Week receive a meningococcal meningitis vaccine 7-10 days prior to your Bear Week arrival. This vaccine is available at Walgreens and CVS, and in many cases is covered completely by your personal health insurance. Consult your doctor and act now!
For HIV positive MSM age 55 years or under, the recommendation is to receive two meningococcal meningitis vaccines spaced about eight weeks apart. For HIV positive MSM age 56 years or over, only one meningococcal meningitis vaccine is needed. For HIV negative MSM, only one meningococcal meningitis vaccine is needed.
