Free shots at gay bars.

No not booze.

http://www.scpr.org/news/2016/08/09/63311/where-to-get-a-free-meningitis-shot-in-la-and-oran/

People hanging out this past Saturday night at Velvet Lounge, a gay bar in Santa Ana, might have been surprised by a special offer: Along with drinks, gay and bisexual men could also get a free meningitis shot inside the venue.

The event was the first in a series of pop-up vaccination clinics that the Orange County Health Care Agency plans to hold at gay bars and clubs during August and September. It was a hit, with 31 people getting the shot and many expressing appreciation that the agency was there, says Jenna Sarin, the health care agency's division manager for family health.

The clinics are part of larger push by Los Angeles and Orange County health officials to get all gay and bisexual men vaccinated against meningitis. There are always a few cases in a typical year, but there's been a spike since March: 22 in L.A. and Orange Counties, two of them fatal. Most of the patients have been gay or bisexual men.

Once again we see a public health issue coming from the homosexual community. It's a unhealthy lifestyle.

1. There was an outbreak of head lice a couple of years ago at the youth center where I volunteer.

Are children an unhealthy lifestyle?

2. Head lice is not even

close to being born with a mental illness that inflicts unnatural degenerate behavior upon the sufferer who in today's society is promoted as normal.

5. Your comparing

head lice to STD's?

Men who have sex with men are at increased risk of contracting HIV, the virus that causes AIDS, as well as other sexually transmitted infections, including hepatitis, human papillomavirus (HPV), herpes simplex, gonorrhea, chlamydia and syphilis.

In my county gay man make up over 90% of all new STD's cases.

8. So if I follow your ignorant logic, going to college in Texas must also be an unhealthy lifestyle.

Meningitis Vaccination Requirement
Effective Jan. 1, 2014, state law (Senate Bill 62) requires that students who will be under age 22 on their first day of class at a public, private or independent institution of higher education in Texas provide proof of immunization for bacterial meningitis. The vaccination or booster dose must have been received during the five years prior to enrollment and at least ten days before the start of classes.
