The investigation into the three recent cases of meningitis cases in Central Oregon, has concluded there’s been a small cluster, rather than a community outbreak of the disease. Karen Yeargain with the Crook County Health Department says the first two cases occurred in Crook County the second and third weeks of March.

On March 22nd, a third case caused the death of an infant in Deschutes County. Health officials say since this isnot a community outbreak, recommendations for the meningococcal vaccine are not being expanded at this time.
