The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and health officials in the states where known shipments of contaminated methylprednisolone acetate were received are working diligently to contact the 13,000 people potentially exposed to fungal infection of the coverings of the brain and spinal cord.
Contact is being made in nearly every method possible — mail, phone calls and emails. To learn if the injection you received into your lower back, neck, shoulder or knee during the period of May 21 to Sept. 26 was possibly contaminated, check the CDC’s list of 76 facilities in 23 states that are known to have received shipments of the medication linked to the fungal meningitis outbreak. The CDC noted that although Nevada is on the list of states having received the medication, all the vials there were recalled before they could be used.
