More than 400 New Yorkers are among those who received steroid injections suspected in a nationwide meningitis outbreak.
However, health officials say so far there have been no reported cases in the state.
Some 13,000 steroid shots were given across the country to patients to aide with pain.
More than 100 people have since tested positive for Meningitis, and nine people have died.
The tainted injections are believed to have been made by a pharmacy in Massachusetts.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention believes the tainted shots were shipped to a medical clinic in Mount Vernon and another clinic in Rochester.
