The Oregon Health Authority has confirmed none of the steroid medication linked to 105 fungal meningitis cases across the country was shipped to Oregon; and there have been no reports of fungal meningitis cases or strokes linked to the outbreak in Oregon.

 

The company that produces the steroid medication - New England Compounding Center, does provide other medications to Oregon clinics. But the head of the Public Health Division, Doctor Paul Cieslak says none of those are connected to the contaminated lot.

 

And there have been no reported cases in Washington. Clark County Health Officer, Doctor Alan Melnick, says none of the steroid was shipped to the Vancouver area.
