  • COVID-19: CMS Ends Vaccine Mandate for HCWs

    The end of the COVID-19 national Public Health Emergency brought a highly controversial issue to a relatively quiet hiatus: Healthcare workers are no longer federally mandated to receive the SARS-CoV-2 vaccine. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services has ended the requirement, which in any case did not apply to boosters or the bivalent vaccines.

  • The Role of Influenza Vaccination in Cardiovascular Event Prevention

    Researchers studied English patients with an acute cardiovascular event who received an influenza vaccine in the same 12-month period and compared that to the 120-day period after vaccination and the rest of the year. They observed those vaccinated were less likely to experience an acute cardiovascular event for 120 days after vaccine vs. the rest of the year.

  • 2022-2023: A Severe Season for Respiratory Syncytial Virus

    The 2022-2023 northern hemisphere respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) season began with fury, crowding hospitals and making many young children extremely ill. Meanwhile, advancing research points to potential means of better preventing RSV infection.

  • Oseltamivir for Pediatric Inpatients with Influenza

    A large study of children hospitalized with influenza clearly shows that oseltamivir given at or near the time of admission is effective in reducing the duration of hospitalization, reducing the requirement for intensive care, and reducing subsequent readmissions within the week after discharge.

  • Text Messages Boosted Pediatric Flu Vaccination Rates

    Personalized, interactive, educational reminders led parents to bring children for the second shot faster and at a higher rate.

  • Pregnant, Influenza-Infected, and Hospitalized

  • Was the 1889-1891 Russian Flu Really Coronavirus?

    The 1889-1891 Russian flu pandemic was noted to spread rapidly through Western Europe, Great Britain, and North America. Contemporary clinical reports described prominent gastrointestinal, rheumatologic, and neurologic abnormalities (including loss of taste and smell), and pathologic reports described prominent thrombosis. A molecular clock analysis suggests a beta coronavirus emerged in humans following cross-species transmission around this time.

  • How an Influenza Vaccine Can Affect Cardiovascular Disease

    A randomized, controlled trial of influenza vaccine vs. placebo in patients with acute myocardial infarction or at high risk for coronary artery disease inoculated during the index hospitalization showed a lower risk of the combined endpoint of death, myocardial infarction, or stent thrombosis at one year.

  • Subclinical Influenza Infection in Healthcare Workers

    Despite all precautions, influenza vaccination, handwashing campaigns, and messaging to staff not to come to work with respiratory symptoms, healthcare workers are an important source of nosocomial influenza and respiratory infection. Now, it is happening with COVID-19.
