TC Clinic Receives Shipment of Steroid Medication Linked to Nationwide Meningitis Outbreak

Posted: Updated:

A Traverse City clinic is one of four in Michigan who received a shipment of the medication that has been linked to a deadly meningitis outbreak nationwide.

The Neuromuscular & Rehabilitation Center in TC received the shipment of the steroid shot.  

The state Department of Community Health says, so far, six cases of the rare kind of meningitis have been reported in Michigan, but have not released the locations.

The three other facilities that received a shipment of the medication involved in the investigation are the Michigan Neurosurgical Institute in Grand Blanc, Michigan Pain Specialists in Brighton, and Southeast Michigan Surgical Hospital in Warren.

Nationwide, hundreds, and maybe even thousands, of people who got the shots between July and September could be at risk.
