Meningitis Scare Linked to Jersey Facilities

The meningitis scare has made its way to the Garden State as six healthcare facilities in New Jersey dolled out medication that might have been associated with the outbreak. While no cases have been reported in Jersey, the outbreak has already resulted in five deaths nationwide. Officials at the six facilities are working to contact all individuals that received the medication, but those who were administered shots at any of the following facilities are urged to call the facility that gave them the injection:

Central Jersey Orthopedics Specialists in South Plainfield; Edison Surgical Center in Edison; IF Pain Associates/Isaiah Florence in Teaneck; Premier Orthopedics Surgical Associates in Vineland; South Jersey Healthcare in Elmer and Vineland, and Richard Siegfried of Sparta. [6 ABC]
