After an unusual outbreak of bacterial meningitis in the gay community, the City Health Department is offering free meningitis vaccinations for gay and bisexual men on the North Side. (Everyone else can get vaccinated, too, but it'll cost you upwards of $50 a shot. No word on how they'll determine the sexuality of those who show up.) Here's a list of inoculation sites.
