News & Events

 

As predicted last summer, we had a particularly heavy 2017-2018 flu season with a new strain of H3N2 influenza predominating. Dr. Scott is embarking on a new flu study taking advantage of this last season, so some of you may be getting calls to see if you would like to participate. FluMist will be available this fall after not being available for the previous two seasons. Both shot and “mist” will have the updated new strain in them, and we are likely to see a light flu season this year in contrast to last year.


In August of 2017, Dr. Scott gave a Grand Rounds presentation at UAB Huntsville entitled “A New Etiological Model for ADHD and Autism” based on his research that has been published in 2014 and 2015. This year, his letter to the Editor was recently published in JAMA Pediatrics arguing that more is known about the cause of autism than is shared with parents, and vaccines do not fit into that evidence-based model. There is still much to learn about potential prevention as well as treatment of autism and other disorders of the brain.

 

We still offer the HPV (Gardasil) vaccine, but concerns about a possible association between it and ovarian dysfunction have been heightened by a new (June ’18) study while lessened by an even newer (August) study. The FDA and CDC don’t think there is reason to be concerned, but we believe further research is needed.
