MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Alabama health officials have contacted 4 of the six additional Alabamians who received injections of steroid medicine from a specialty pharmacy linked to a meningitis outbreak.
The state's deputy director of medical affairs, Dr. Tom Miller, said Wednesday that two are fine. Two are showing symptoms and will be seen by their physician to see if the symptoms are ordinary or something more serious. The Department of Public Health is trying to reach the other two patients. The six live in Alabama, but were treated in Florida.
The department earlier received IDs of 13 other Alabamians who were treated in Florida and Tennessee. State Health Officer Don Williamson said Tuesday that one died and officials are awaiting autopsy results. Eleven showed no symptoms and one is under review.
