Free Vaccination Clinic
August 26, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm UTC-8
The Center in partnership with the Long Beach Department of Health and Human Services will be offering a ONE DAY vaccination clinic FREE of charge.
Gay, bisexual, queer men are continuing to come into contact with meningitis in Los Angeles County and the City of Long Beach. The CDC and the Long Beach Health Department encourage anyone who hasn’t been vaccinated in the last 5-years to get vaccinated. People living with HIV are impacted more by meningitis and it’s encouraged that they get vaccinated and follow up with a booster in 2 months.
Meningitis is spread through spit and saliva, which means kissing, sharing drinks or cigarettes (e-cigarettes included) can expose anyone. Coughing and sneezing can spread meningitis in close quarters like dorms, shared living spaces, bars and clubs.
Vaccinations are available with no appointment needed and public health nurses will be available to answer any questions you may have.
