FLU SERIES Lessons learned from this year’s vaccine crisis

first_img One aspect of such collaboration is clarifying legal and liability issues, said Ned Calonge, MD, MPH, chief medical officer for the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE). Redistributing vaccine, for example, might go more smoothly if officials could clarify who pays whom and how, as well as what liability issues affect state law. See also: “We’re hopeful that one, two, or maybe more companies will be interested in selling [flu vaccine] in the US,” said Strikas. “Then, if one has a hiccup, one or more can step in.” April 8, 2005 (CIDRAP News) – The only thing more unpredictable than the fickle, fast-changing influenza virus may be the US flu season itself. Yet health experts who weathered this year’s vaccine shortfall, which began early in October with the news that Chiron Corp. couldn’t deliver nearly half of the expected US vaccine supply, have found the 2004-05 flu season instructive. The lessons they draw may prove helpful in managing future problems with supply and distribution and also in facing the possibility of pandemic influenza. Stearns County, about 70 miles northwest of the Twin Cities, did a fine job ensuring that people received vaccine through an effective local collaboration, said Ehresmann, adding that MDH is encouraging similar efforts throughout the state. Anticipating the worst: pandemic fluLast fall, Coloradoans conducted a mass vaccination clinic in a small area to measure the state’s ability to meet a mass vaccination target. It turned out to be one of the bright spots in the season, according to Calonge. Volunteers and ham radio operators helped coordinate the vaccine transfer among many counties. A daunting target vaccination rate proved more achievable than officials expected. In addition, the MDH is working to enhance communication among those involved in flu immunization, Ehresmann said. Her office is convening a statewide workgroup on flu that will allow state officials to consult directly with healthcare providers in groups that may be affected by changes in the disease or the vaccine supply. In addition, the department is encouraging creation of community coalitions. Shortage turns to surplusNearly half of the expected US flu vaccine supply disappeared last fall because of contamination problems at a Chiron Corp. plant in England. Eventually, the country obtained about 61 million doses of flu vaccine instead of the roughly 100 million doses expected earlier. “Partnership was a critical piece of what we did,” Strikas said. “There needs to be coordination, particularly while the product is in short supply.” Although some state and local public health departments reported instances when they physically held or transferred flu vaccine, simply knowing where the doses are is often more important than having them in hand, officials said. “We were really cautious—and rightly so—about supply, but we have always had vaccine that goes unused,” Ehresmann said. But the surplus suggests to her that MDH must “do the least restrictive limiting we can possibly do, so we don’t end up wasting vaccine,” she said. Multiple suppliers wantedHaving two companies—Chiron Corp. and Sanofi-Pasteur (formerly Aventis Pasteur)—provide the bulk of the nation’s flu vaccine doesn’t leave much room for handling problems, experts said. “We came away convinced that if we needed to use that process for pandemic flu, we could meet the vaccine requirement,” Calonge said.center_img “Both influenza disease and vaccine supply are unpredictable,” he told CIDRAP News. His list of lessons learned or reinforced this season highlights preparation: expect the unexpected, plan for many scenarios, be flexible, and be proactive. Despite the shortfall, good news was plentiful this flu season. It was only a moderate season, with illness peaking in mid-February, according to a CDC recap in this week’s Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR). The season was milder for kids this year, with far lower hospitalization rates than in the previous season. And an estimated 17 million Americans refrained from getting a flu shot so that doses would go to high-risk people. Targeting those at greater risk from the flu proved effective, with vaccination rates for the high-risk groups hewing closely to the levels of previous years despite the reduced vaccine supply, MMWR reported March 31. It’s not clear how many leftover doses may be in the hands of individual providers or groups. Ehresmann estimated that the number is in the thousands. Doses are only good for one season because the combination of viral strains used in the vaccine is changed every year, so many of the remaining doses may go to waste. Web-based partnershipsVirtual vaccine distribution systems may be increasingly important to managing supply during a flu season. Think of it as a way for many people to communicate effectively about vaccine orders, manufacturers, and supplies even in the off-season. Health officials in Minnesota found the same thing, and are taking steps to formalize new relationships before the next flu season. Calonge, with Colorado, called the current system too risky. “It’s a more fragile system than I would like to see,” he said. In the end, the expected vaccine shortage turned into a surplus: 3 million doses, roughly the equivalent of the CDC stockpile, remains, Strikas said. In Minnesota, for instance, the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) is launching an Internet-based data collection tool, said Kristen Ehresmann, RN, MPH, manager of the department’s immunization, tuberculosis, and international health section. Local public health workers will be able to track vaccine orders by healthcare providers, such as hospitals and nursing homes, as well as by manufacturers. The information will be accessible online, so “we’ll go into the season knowing where people ordered from and how many doses they’re expecting,” Ehresmann said. Expecting the unexpectedFlu vaccine can take a lot of detours between the egg and the arm. That’s why flexibility is key, said Dr. Raymond Strikas, associate director for the adult immunization program at the National Immunization Program at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Trump to spend days at military hospital after COVID-19 diagnosis

first_imgTrump will work in a special suite at the hospital for the next few days as a precautionary measure, White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany said. Online video showed a small group of Trump supporters outside Walter Reed late on Friday waving Trump 2020 flags, most not wearing masks.Trump, 74, has a mild fever, according to a source familiar with the matter. White House doctor Sean P. Conley said late on Friday that Trump was doing very well, did not need supplemental oxygen, and had received a first dose of Remdesivir, an intravenous antiviral drug sold by Gilead Sciences that has been shown to shorten hospital stays.In a tweet late on Friday, the president wrote: “Going well, I think! Thank you to all. LOVE!!!”The diagnosis was the latest setback for the Republican president, who is trailing Democratic rival Joe Biden in opinion polls ahead of the Nov. 3 presidential election. Trump has played down the threat of the coronavirus pandemic from the outset, even as the disease has killed more than 200,000 Americans and hammered the US economy.A number of other prominent Republicans also tested positive on Friday, including former White House senior adviser Kellyanne Conway and Republican senators Mike Lee and Thom Tillis.Vice President Mike Pence, who would take over presidential duties if Trump became severely ill, tested negative, a spokesman said. The former Indiana governor, 61, is working from his own residence several miles from the White House.Trump is at high risk because of his age and weight. He has remained in apparent good health during his time in office but is not known to exercise regularly or to follow a healthy diet.Conley said earlier on Friday that Trump has received an experimental treatment, Regeneron’s REGN-COV2, one of several experimental COVID-19 drugs known as monoclonal antibodies, which are used for treating a wide range of illnesses.Trump is also taking zinc, Vitamin D, famotidine, melatonin and aspirin, Conley said.Topics : US President Donald Trump was in a military hospital on Saturday for treatment after testing positive for COVID-19, an extraordinary development that upended the presidential race a month before the Nov. 3 election.Roughly 17 hours after he made his diagnosis public, Trump walked slowly from the White House to a waiting helicopter to be taken to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland. He wore a mask and business suit and did not speak to reporters.”I think I’m doing very well, but we’re going to make sure that things work out,” Trump said in a brief video message posted on Twitter. Early on Friday, he had tweeted that he and the first lady, Melania Trump, had contracted the virus.last_img read more

Friends, coaches remember runner Sabrina Cammock for infectious personality, competitive drive

first_img Published on March 9, 2015 at 11:48 pm Contact Sam: sblum@syr.edu | @SamBlum3 Sabrina Cammock took pride in her name and her identity. One time when she was in high school, the athletic director approached her and asked which runner she was.The question stopped Cammock in her tracks.She straightened her back, gave him a look and said, “I’m Sabrina, don’t ya know?” From then on, whenever the two crossed paths again, he jokingly repeated the phrase to her.Cammock — throughout her life — was the type of person whose personality was infectious and drew widespread respect.“She was just a young lady of dignity,” her high school track coach Linda Jordan said. “That’s how I can sum it up with Sabrina, she was just a young lady of dignity.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textOn Saturday morning, Cammock was found dead in her room in the Hotel Edison in New York City. The 21-year-old Syracuse University sprinter, from Queens, New York, spent Friday night celebrating with friends and teammates, but didn’t wake up the next morning. An initial autopsy was inconclusive.Cammock was one of the most successful sprinters in Syracuse history and was in the middle of a senior season in which she placed 13th overall in the 60 meters at the Atlantic Coast Conference indoor championships. She was also the school’s record holder for the 4×100 meter relay. She was a well-liked person and everyone — even if they didn’t know her personally — had heard of her personality and running dominance.“She always believed in me and she was always proud of me,” said Aziza Hawthorne, Cammock’s best friend and “little sister.” “And I want to stay strong for her, but sometimes it’s been hard and emotions come in waves… when it starts to sink in I can’t breathe.“My heart is bleeding and I’m drowning and it’s just really, really the worst thing ever.”On the morning of Cammock’s death, Jordan was at a state track meet, and a coach from another school brought her name up — unaware that she had died. They were talking about the best sprinters that had gone through the Catholic school programs, and Cammock was the first to come to mind.In Cammock’s junior season, she led her school to its first-ever Millrose Games held at Madison Square Garden. She was one leg of the 4×400 meter relay, but had come into the event injured. Her coaches told her that she shouldn’t run.“’Are you kidding me?’” Jordan recalled Cammock saying, “‘I’m going to do this. I’ll deal with it after I get off the track.’”It was only a year prior that she had started running. She joined the team as a sophomore who didn’t know how to use her hands or her feet or even follow the rules. She disqualified herself from a meet for blatantly switching lanes during a sprint.But her talent and speed were undeniable. Even in her first season, she qualified for the state meet. Her talents came naturally to her, whether it was running, singing or in her work as an intern at SUNY Upstate Medical University Hospital.Cammock’s family opened its doors to her friends and extended family on Sunday. For Hawthorne, coming home from school in Binghamton was almost too difficult. She said she knew everything and everyone at home would remind her of Cammock.Hawthorne said that Cammock never doubted her, even when Hawthorne doubted herself. There are some runners that don’t have fun when they compete, Hawthorne said, and let the moment get the best of them. But Cammock just went out and had fun when she competed.“It’s heartbreaking,” Syracuse freshman runner Justyn Knight said. “She always had a smile if I said hi.”On the bus to meets, she’d belt out her beautiful singing voice on the bus. After running, she’d eat the buffalo wings that Jordan secretly made just for her. When someone else did well, she’d go around and tell everyone how proud she was of them.In early February, Hawthorne introduced Cammock to everyone at a track meet as her sister, because, as Hawthorne put it, that’s just who she was.“She can make you laugh, she can empathize with you. She can do — she’s just Superwoman,” Hawthorne said. “… She just didn’t realize what a person she was.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more
