Supporting our LGBTQ Community

Despite significant civil rights gains in recent years, individuals and family members of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender & Questioning (LGBTQ) community often face large and small scale marginalization, discrimination, hate, and a variety of other hardships to navigate.  For LGBTQ individuals also working through additional hardships such as homelessness, hunger, unemployment and mental illness, accessing our community’s supportive services can feel insurmountable.

At 2-1-1 San Diego, we are passionately dedicated to breaking down all barriers to accessing health and community services throughout San Diego County.  Recognizing that the LGBTQ community often faces additional barriers to access, 2-1-1 San Diego has created this LGBTQ Community Resource focus page as tool to foster connections needed between service providers and individuals in need.  Our vision is that everyone knows 2-1-1 San Diego, connects with us, and refers to us to get the information they need for a happier, healthier life.

Hepatitis A Information

 

The County of San Diego is reminding gay and bisexual men to get the hepatitis A vaccine. An increased number of cases of hepatitis A virus (HAV) are occurring among gay and bisexual men in San Diego County in 2017 compared with 2016. Gay and bisexual men have higher risk for hepatitis A, and national organizations, including the CDC and the Gay & Lesbian Medical Association, recommend all gay and bisexual men receive the vaccine. The County of San Diego is informing local healthcare providers of the increase in cases this year, reminding them to offer vaccine, and requesting their assistance in detecting and reporting any cases of hepatitis A.

San Diego County is not alone! Outbreaks of hepatitis A among gay and bisexual men are occurring in Los Angeles, New York City, Colorado, Michigan, Chile, Australia and Europe.

Help San Diego be proactive by protecting yourself and getting vaccinated. Please contact your healthcare provider or local pharmacy to receive a vaccination. For more information on hepatitis A, click on the button below:
