[The pro-homosexual] AIDS Healthcare Foundation President Michael Weinstein said Tuesday the deaths of two 30-year-old men should be investigated for connections to the bacterial meningitis that killed 33-year-old Brett Shaad Saturday.

Public health officials would not confirm the cases, though one of them was announced by San Diego State university, where one of the men was a graduate student.

Shaad's case brought warnings from West Hollywood officials to sexually active gay men to beware of the threat.

New York City health officials are urging some men to get vaccinated against meningitis amid an outbreak that has sickened 22 New Yorkers and killed seven.

The dangerous strain of bacterial meningitis appears to be spreading through sexual encounters between men who meet through websites or smartphone apps, or at bars or parties, according to the City’s health department. More than half of the infected men have had HIV, a virus that attacks the immune system making infections more likely and more severe.

Bacterial meningitis is an infection of the brain’s membranous lining, called the meninges. Early symptoms include fever, headache, vomiting, stiff neck and a rash within 10 days of the infection. If left untreated, the disease can cause severe brain damage and even death, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

“I strongly recommend all men who have intimate contact with other men get vaccinated,” Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz said in a statement. “This disease is both potentially fatal and extremely contagious, so increasing the public’s awareness to this growing issue and encouraging vaccination are of the utmost importance.”

From "Two more men died from meningitis last year, group says" by Anna Gorman and Ari Bloomekatz, Los Angeles Times 4/16/13

Public health officials have not said whether the cases were the same strain as the one that caused the death of a 33-year-old West Hollywood lawyer last weekend. State officials said they were investigating the additional deaths and would report their findings if bacterial meningitis is confirmed.

Officials from the county's Department of Public Health did not immediately return phone calls and emails Tuesday. But in a health advisory posted on the agency's website earlier in the week, they said: "At this point in the investigation, Public Health has not identified any other cases of meningococcal meningitis associated with this patient, nor identified any linkage between this patient and outbreaks that have been reported in other areas of the country."

The agency says meningococcal meningitis disease "is a rare infection of the lining of the brain and the spinal cord" and is "spread by very close exposure to sneezing and coughing or direct contact with" saliva or nasal mucus. While it is generally rare, and harder to catch than the common cold, meningitis can be deadly
