Vaccination Response to an Ongoing Meningitis Outbreak: Uptake and Attitudes among Men Who Have Sex with Men in Los Angeles, CA

Despite a year-long outbreak of invasive meningococcal disease in Southern California primarily affecting gay and bisexual men, less than 27% of men who have sex with men (MSM) in Los Angeles County have been vaccinated for meningitis. The findings, released by the California HIV/AIDS Policy Research Centers collaboration between UCLA, the Los Angeles LGBT Center, and APLA Health – call for more education about the disease and more immunization access points throughout Southern California at venues where gay and bisexual men socialize.
