If you were affected by the fungal meningitis outbreak, you may still be interested in updated information regarding the ongoing investigation by the FDA and the CDC.

You can follow the progress of the investigation by clicking on this link:

I urge anyone that received an injection linked to any NECC product to closely monitor their health.  If you think you have symptoms of fungal meningitis or other disease, be sure to advise your doctor of your injection. The CDC is also reporting that patients who received injections may suffer complications such as spinal epidural abscess and arachnoiditis.  For more information from the CDC click here:
