Thank you @DrLeanaWen for your voice of reason and practical solutions, especially over the past two years to navigate #Covid_19 sensibly and safely. The pleasure was mine! #AspenIdeasHealth @NorthwellHealth

As Surgeon General and as a doctor, I know that equitable access to reproductive health services is a cornerstone for health, and I will do everything I can to speak up for and support women’s right to make their own decisions about their health. 7/7

FDA is the gateway of public health. It’s a science-based regulatory agency. There is clarity of purpose: The North Star is the well-being of the American people. —@DrCaliff_FDA with Jackie Judd #AspenIdeasHealth

Breyer/Sotomayor/Kagan: "With sorrow—for this Court, but more, for the many millions of American women who have today lost a fundamental constitutional protection—we dissent." From Roe ... to Sorrow. It truly is sad.

Should parents of 4-year olds wait until their kids turn 5 to get the higher dose #covid19 vaccine? No—and as a mom for an almost 5-year old, I won’t be waiting. If kids turn 5 by the time of their next dose, they can get the higher dose then. @wolfblitzer

Good news 2: Death rates are low & are staying low. 3/1000 reported cases end in death. If you count all the unreported cases, it’s likely below 1/1000. We are tracking around 250 deaths/day. Mostly unvaccinated, but also unboosted elderly people I suspect. 5/
Where should families go to get their under-5 year old kids the #covid19 vaccine? Should they choose Moderna's or Pfizer's? If their child already has had covid-19, should they still be vaccinated?

Even if it’s unlikely to change the trajectory of the pandemic, having this youngest age group eligible for vaccination is an important milestone, @DrLeanaWen writes
Which covid vaccine should parents of under 5s choose? Both are safe and induce a strong antibody response. Some might prefer Pfizer because it has already been given to millions of 5-11 year olds. Others might prefer Moderna who want the highest level of protection the fastest.
"[Early on], doubling down on a suppress-the-virus strategy, even if it had large social costs, made total sense. But, when people advocate for a similar approach now, when we have vaccines & therapeutics—that feels very anti-public health. @AshishKJha46…

A hopeful, forward-looking interview of Dr. Ashish Jha by @DhruvKhullar @NewYorker. I appreciated @AshishKJha46's nuance, i.e. "...we can’t let long covid become this thing that strikes fear in the hearts of everybody. And yet, at the same time, we can’t minimize long covid."

BREAKING: CDC advisors just voted unanimously to recommend both Moderna and Pfizer vaccines for under-5 year olds.

Next step--CDC director needs to sign off, which is expected soon.

Parents could start getting kids the vaccine this week!👏👏👏…
These CDC ACIP slides make the case for vaccinating children <5.

#covid19 may be milder in kids than adults, but it's still a top reason for child fatality.

We give routine childhood vaccinations for other diseases that cause less deaths--because the point is to prevent them.

Speaking soon with @Boris_Sanchez on @CNN about the dangers of extreme heat.

People most at risk from hyperthermia are the very young, elderly, and medically frail.

When it's very hot outdoors, seek air-conditioned spaces. Drink lots of fluid. Do not leave kids/pets in cars.

Coronavirus vaccines for youngest kids have been authorized by FDA.

Shots could come as soon as next week, after the CDC gives the final green light.
I’ll be looking to the CDC to clarify when children should be vaccinated following infection. Recovery from recent #covid19 infection conveys some immunity. Vaccination in addition to recovery results in hybrid immunity, which is more robust & long-lasting than infection alone.

With vaccines to be available to under 5s, it is beyond time to end daycare quarantines. They’re disruptive to the workforce AND kids’ education (daycares often operate as preschools).
Speaking soon with @andersoncooper @AC360 on the huge relief from many parents that their young kids will likely be able to receive the #covid19 vaccine next week. As a father told FDA advisers today, this is what his family has missed to protect his 1- and 3-year old.

In reply to @DrLeanaWen
And that’s what these vaccines are. The FDA’s analyses of company data show both the 3-dose Pfizer and 2-dose Moderna vaccines are safe. They both induce a robust antibody response that’s as strong as the response in adolescents and young adults. /4
Replying to @DrLeanaWen
I am convinced by these data and reassured by the thoughtful, rigorous process undertaken. It’s been a year and a half since adults first started their inoculations. Finally, our youngest children will no longer be left behind. /END @postopinions…
