Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Throat carriage (42.7%) of Staphylococcus aureus exceeded nasal carriage (35.0%) in 2 New York prisons. Methicillin resistance, primarily due to USA300, was high at both sites; 25% of dually colonized inmates had different strains. Strategies to reduce S. aureus transmission will need to consider the high frequency of throat colonization.
