News & Events

 

Dr. Scott's influenza vaccine study was recently published in the American Journal of Infection Control. His audio slide show about the study is available through ScienceDirect and the study was publicized by the Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology in a press release at the end of September. The most important finding was that children who have had flu before benefit the most from the vaccine, which has implications for genetic susceptibility.

 

This flu season, CDC has said not to use FluMist, so we are just giving the flu shot. It is best to get immunized before December or January if possible.

 

CDC is now recommending that 11- to 14-year-olds get just 2 doses (rather than the usual 3 dose series) of Gardasil 9. We still have a potential concern for girls and we encourage all of our patients to delay sexual intimacy until marriage to avoid not only HPV-induced cancers, but all sexually transmitted infections. It is also the best plan for a future stable, happy, and healthy family.
