As H1N1 sweeps US, officials brace for vaccine launch

Posted on by

first_imgSep 25, 2009 (CIDRAP News) – The pandemic H1N1 virus is spreading widely through the United States, and as health officials feverishly prepare to distribute the first vaccine doses due to arrive in early October, the public should expect some initial bumps in the road, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said today.Tom Frieden, MD, the CDC’s director, told reporters at a press briefing that as health officials and manufacturers race to get the vaccine out in time to slow the quickly speading flu, which has been fueled by students’ return to school, the public should brace itself for a few initial problems with the rollout. The CDC has been predicting that about 45 million to 50 million doses of vaccine will become available in mid October, followed by about 20 million a week after that, reaching a total of 195 million in December.”It’s going to be a busy and challenging next couple weeks,” Frieden warned.Five more states report widespread fluThe CDC’s newest influenza surveillance report, released today, shows that flu activity is widespread in 26 states, five more than the previous week. Most states reporting widespread activity are in the southern half of the country, though Alaska, Washington, Minnesota, Illinois, and Pennsylvania are in the widespread category. Eleven states reported regional activity, and 12 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico reported local activity.Frieden said the good news is that officials see no change in the genetic makeup of the virus or in the pattern of pandemic H1N1 infections, which is still a moderate illness that affects mainly children and young adults ages 5 to 24.”Having the flu is no picnic, though. It can knock you right on your back for a couple of days,” Frieden said, and it can cause severe illness and death in some patients.As federal officials watch flu activity increase across the nation, they’re not sure if the season will peak early and then decline for the rest of the fall or winter or if seasonal flu viruses will circulate at their normal time, he said. Today’s surveillance report says 99% of circulating flu viruses in the United States are the pandemic H1N1 strain.The percentage of doctor visits for flu-like illnesses rose for the fifth week in a row, remaining well above the national baseline. The percentage of deaths from pneumonia and flu stayed above the seasonal baseline but was below the epidemic threshold.Three more pediatric deaths linked to the pandemic H1N1 virus were reported, two from Texas and one from Virginia.One more case of oseltamivir-resistant pandemic H1N1 was reported, raising the nation’s total to 11.Pandemic vaccine debut nearsFrieden said the earliest doses of the pandemic H1N1 vaccine will arrive at providers’ offices as early as October 6. He said the first shipments will likely be the nasal-spray FluMist version of the vaccine, because the vaccine virus grew better and the manufacturer was able to make more of it early, compared to other manufacturers.. The live attenuated vaccine from MedImmune is indicated for children and adults aged 2 through 49.Though the CDC has advised that those with underlying health conditions should be among the first to receive H1N1 vaccine, the nasal-spray vaccine is contraindicated for most high-risk patients. However, school-age children are a priority group, and health officials have said they believe the MedImmune vaccine will be a good fit with what they hope will be widely available school-based vaccination sites.A Sep 23 report in the New England Journal of Medicine suggested that FluMist seasonal vaccine was less effective than the injectable version in adults, which might cast doubt on how effective the pandemic H1N1 version of FluMist will be. Frieden said that though the study was carefully done, it covered only one flu season and one formulation of FluMist. He noted that other studies have shown that FluMist is more potent in kids than its injectable counterpart.Health experts can’t predict how the nasal-spray and injectable pandemic H1N1 vaccines will measure up against each other, but Frieden said he expects both will provide strong protection because the viruses in them appear to closely match the circulating strain.During the first couple of weeks, the demand for the vaccine may exceed the supply and lead to some frustrations, Frieden said. Also, states are handling distribution to counties and cities, and they vary in their resources and expertise for managing their vaccine supplies. He added that federal health officials have allocated $1.5 billion to assist states with immunization planning and administration activities.”In the coming weeks there is going to be some roughness,” he said.” We don’t know what uptake will be, and we also don’t know which states will have problems—but we’re working hard to identify them and help them overcome difficulties.” Frieden projected that the vaccine will be administered at 90,000 sites across the nation.Frieden said providers are being urged to use the supplies they have as soon as they get them, because supplies will quickly be replenished and will become plentiful for anyone who wants the vaccine by mid to late October.Canadian findings reverberate in USFrieden fielded questions about a news report from the Canadian Press that revealed unpublished evidence from two respected flu researchers, who examined data from British Columbia, Quebec, and Ontario, suggesting that those who received a seasonal flu shot last year had a higher risk of H1N1 infection.The findings have prompted some Canadian public health officials to consider delaying, reducing, or canceling seasonal flu vaccination campaigns this fall. Yesterday Ontario’s chief medical officer announced that the provincial health department would postpone most of its seasonal flu shot campaign until after the pandemic vaccine has been given, the Canadian Press reported. Seniors, who are at greatest risk for seasonal flu, are still slated to receive their seasonal shots in October.CDC officials have looked at their data and have not found that people who received the seasonal flu shot last year had a higher risk of pandemic H1N1 infection, Frieden said. He added that didn’t find any evidence to confirm the link in data from New York City, where he recently served as health commissioner.Frieden said he couldn’t imagine what mechanism would make patients who received seasonal flu vaccine more vulnerable to the pandemic H1N1 virus, though he said the CDC is taking the concerns very seriously. “If data is published, we’d love to see it, but nothing we’ve seen indicates that’s likely to be a problem,” he said.See also:CDC weekly influenza surveillance reportSep 24 CIDRAP News story “Unpublished Canadian data on seasonal flu shots and H1N1 stir concern”last_img read more

The Blues want to end the season with a trophy, as they are almost certain to go out in the round of 16 of the Champions League to Bayern Munich.

Bill to help address opioid epidemic passes Indiana Senate

Posted on by

first_imgIndianapolis, In. — A bill authored by Republican state senator from Oldenburg Jean Leising that would help address the opioid epidemic facing Indiana passed the Senate unanimously.Senate Bill 133 would require a pharmacist who dispenses prescription drugs that contain or are derived from opium to list on the label that the drug is an opioid.“The opioid epidemic continues to harm our entire state, including our elderly population,” Leising said. “Many older individuals are prescribed medication for health issues, not realizing they are opioids or how addictive they can be. If passed, this bill would help improve consumer awareness and prevent our older generations from unintentionally developing a drug addiction.”In 2018, more than 5 million opioid prescriptions were prescribed in Indiana, according to data from INSPECT, Indiana’s prescription drug monitoring program.SB 133 will now move to the House of Representatives for further consideration.last_img read more

Men’s Basketball: Don’t attack Kobe King for his decision to leave UW

Posted on by

first_imgUniversity of Wisconsin men’s basketball fans, before you read this, I need you to understand — I get it. It sucks when you truly believe someone can come in and help a program, and they decide the team you love just isn’t for them.But slandering teenagers for making a decision they believe will better their chances at multi-million dollar contracts is not a good look for Wisconsin sports. Ultimately, it only hurts our chances at getting top-tier recruits down the road.This is not to say the way former Badger and current transfer-portal-player Kobe King went about leaving the program was perfect. He was arguably the team’s best player and left midway through an up-and-down season to pursue other options for personal reasons.Men’s Basketball: Making case for increasing Micah Potter’s playing timeSince being deemed eligible by the NCAA, Wisconsin forward Micah Potter has been extremely efficient for the Badgers. The junior Read…Yes, it left a gaping hole in the program — but at the same time, kids don’t grow up dreaming of missing the tournament two of their first three years in college.Simply put, if a program isn’t making runs deep into March, top-tier talent just sees their NCAA days as a stepping stone to the NBA. The Kaminsky-Dekker days gave King reason to believe in that success, but he clearly felt the standards of that era weren’t being lived up to anymore.King is as naturally gifted as any recruit to come out of Wisconsin in the last decade, aside from maybe a few guys in high school right now. He was, and may still be, a player with a legitimate shot at the NBA.With that in mind, let’s try to understand what King has seen growing up from fellow Wisconsin natives with that same potential pro status.Men’s Basketball: Look at Wisconsin’s 2020 recruiting classThe University of Wisconsin basketball program has much to be optimistic about for the 2020-21 season with a very impressive Read…Back in 2011, Sam Dekker was the No. 12 recruit in the country, according to 247 Sports. He came to Wisconsin, spent three years here and was selected as the No. 18 pick in the 2015 NBA Draft.Not bad by any stretch of the imagination. But just four years later, Dekker is suiting up for Lokomotiv Kuban in Russia — hoping to earn a shot at the big leagues again.Just a year after the recruitment of Dekker, Wisconsin landed 4-star guard Bronson Koenig, who had amazing success here at UW, but has yet to get the chance to play in the NBA.That same year, Matt Thomas of Onalaska, Wisconsin headed off to Iowa State en route to becoming a 3-point specialist for the Toronto Raptors.Men’s Basketball: Badgers continue to roll at home, beat The Ohio StateThe University of Wisconsin men’s basketball team (14-10, 7-6 Big Ten) took control early and never let go en route Read…In 2013, King watched as Milwaukee native Kevon Looney headed to California to play for blue-blood University of California, Los Angeles. Looney has now won two championships with the Golden State Warriors and recently signed a $15 million contract extension.2015 comes along and both Diamond Stone and Henry Ellenson go alternative routes and become first-rounders after one year in college. Meanwhile, Brevin Pritzl is finally seeing real playing time in his fifth year at Wisconsin in 2020.So King commits in 2017, holding onto the belief that the program he grew up loving can do at least one of two things — give him the time of his life playing college basketball, or help him make millions of dollars in the NBA.Men’s Basketball: Kobe King announces departure from UW basketball programRedshirt sophomore guard Kobe King has announced his intentions to depart the University of Wisconsin men’s basketball program in a Read…But neither happens. Even worse, King has to sit back and watch while guys younger than him make major moves.He sees five-star Milwaukee guard Tyler Herro decommit from Wisconsin to hone his skills for the next level with Head Coach John Calipari at Kentucky. Now after being selected with the No. 13 pick in last year’s draft, Herro is already a key player in the running for NBA Rookie of the Year with the Miami Heat at just 20 years old.Tyrese Haliburton of Oshkosh has blossomed into a projected top ten pick in his time at Iowa State, and he was considered to be such a long-term project coming out of high school that UW didn’t even offer him.So don’t take to Twitter and say stuff like, “Quitter. Even worse is the Twitter people who support him leaving. You’re not real Badger fans,” as one fan, who I’ll keep anonymous, did.Don’t support former Badger Zak Showalter for coming at King, saying, “Some play for the name on the back, some play for the name on the front.”An axe to grindThe University of Wisconsin and the University of Minnesota have perhaps the most storied rivalry in college sports, as the Read…No one knows the true facts of King’s transfer, and he’s had no history of any sort of poor character. So don’t drag him for doing what he believes is best for his future.If someone studying business at Madison College transferred to UW because they felt it better equipped them with the skill for life after school, you wouldn’t call them a “quitter,” so why say it to Kobe King?Doing so will just hurt our chances at landing homegrown top-tier talent. We’ve already seen two elite in-state recruits, the No. 11 ranked recruit in 2020, Jalen Johnson, and the No. 3 ranked recruit in 2021, Patrick Baldwin Jr., shy away from the Badgers.There will be plenty more recruits like King, Herro, Johnson and Baldwin. And if nothing changes, they’ll leave too.last_img read more

Mourinho has disrespected me- Capello

Posted on by

first_imgEngland manager Fabio Capello hit back at Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho, and believes that the Portuguese tactician has been disrespectful towards him.The two-time Champions League winning coach recently claimed that he had come very close to taking the reins to the national team in 2007, as a replacement for Steve McClaren.Mourinho also maintained that he eventually turned down the chance to manage the Three Lions due to a preference towards club football, before joining Inter at the time.Now the Italian believes that speaking of previous offers in such a way shows a lack of respect towards the person in charge, while choosing not to comment on reports that claimed he was approached to succeed Sven-Goran Eriksson in 2006.“I don’t speak about the relationship with the other clubs, for respect for other managers,” Capello said, according to The Mirror.“I don’t like to speak about my relationship with the clubs, with other people. These are my personal secrets. I’ll never tell you about what really happened in my career. “I think it’s serious. Every time a club or a different national team decides to choose a manager, they decide to speak with a lot of managers. It’s normal. It’s not different. This is a question for the chairman that chose me, not a question for me.“I don’t like to speak about this. I’ve said enough. Thank you.”The FA has chosen to react by releasing a statement to play down the situation, as a spokesman said: “Fabio was our first choice for England manager. We have made that clear from the outset.”Goal.comlast_img read more

Dabo Swinney responds to criticism of COVID-19 comments: ‘I could say the sky is blue and somebody would be mad’

Posted on by

first_imgThose comments — particularly news that he violated social distancing guidelines during a pandemic — prompted backlash for the Tigers coach. But Swinney doubled down on Monday in an interview on the SiriusXM radio show “Off Campus with Mark Packer.”MORE: Will coronavirus cancel college football in 2020?”It doesn’t matter what I say or what anybody says, there is going to be criticism,” Swinney said. “It doesn’t surprise me at all. You know, I could say the sky is blue and somebody would be as mad as anything. That’s one thing I’ve learned over the years. I don’t get affected by that. I just speak my heart. “I just answered the question the other day. That is the other thing. You answer questions and you try to be honest and transparent and you answer questions, and then you get blasted because somebody might not agree with your answer or something like that.”Swinney isn’t the only college football coach to have voiced an opinion on college football and COVID-19. Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy on Monday said he hoped to be back to business as usual on May 1, saying his players are “healthy and have the ability to fight the virus off.”Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly also said to “let the scientists determine” whether college football can be played (responding to Kirk Herbstreit’s comments that he’d be “shocked” if the season occurred at all). Clemson coach Dabo Swinney has responded to criticism he received after comments he made last week regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19) and his family’s travel plans amid calls for social distancing.Swinney told reporters in a conference call on Friday that America would “kick this thing right in the teeth” in time for the 2020 college football season. In the same call, he admitted he and his family had taken a private plane to vacation in Florida with potential plans to do so again for Easter.last_img read more
