Traverse City Man Dies from Meningitis

Posted: Updated:

An 80 year old man from Traverse City is now the 17th person in the state to die from contaminated steroids that led to a huge Meningitis outbreak.

The steroids were supplied by a Massachusetts pharmaceutical company, and were used mostly for back pain.

A total of 258 people in Michigan have been sickened by the outbreak since it began back in September.

Last year, a woman in Charlevoix County died after getting the shots.
