Rates of #COVID19 cases remain high, especially in parts of the Midwest & Northeast. The 7-day average of daily new cases is 86,413.
CDC recommends everyone 5+ years get a COVID-19 vaccine & everyone 18+ years get a booster dose. Get vaccinated!
Parents and Guardians: Help kids get back to being kids. Get your children ages 5 years & up vaccinated against #COVID19 as soon as possible. Learn more about the latest recommendations for children and teens: https://bit.ly/3CJme0v. #SleeveUp
During the COVID-19 pandemic, don't forget about #flu. Flu vaccines are the only vaccines that protect against flu. Protect yourself and #FightFlu by getting a flu shot today. http://bit.ly/3DYIDHj
A new @CDCMMWR of 6 jurisdictions finds lower #COVID19 vaccination rates among people experiencing homelessness (19% to 45%) compared with all residents living in the same area (44% to 60%). Learn more: https://bit.ly/mm7048a4.
School district administrators: If you need help setting up #COVID19 vaccination clinics, see CDC’s roadmap that can provide info on working with health departments & other vaccine providers.

Agree. Early in the pandemic we were told our insurance would cover some at home saliva testing. It did! But only after my husband filed two sets of forms and spent and hour on the phone with the insurer. This feels...infeasible
Better: have free antigen tests everywhere. https://twitter.com/JenniferNuzzo/status/1466550977033506818
Reducing the financial barriers to testing is very much needed. But requiring insurers to cover testing does not guarantee access. Not for those without insurance. But also not necessarily for those WITH insurance if insurers can define how they reimburse.
The guy who pulled his penis out on Zoom is the key CNN commentator on today’s SCOTUS hearing on MS abortion law. That’s about all you need to know about the politics of gender in this country.
3-month-old Tyler Rendon from Rancho Cordova #California passed away from COVID in February. As the young couple grieves the loss of their son, they want other parents to be more cautious. #SoulsLostToCovid https://www.kcra.com/article/infant-son-covid-19-rancho-cordova-couple-cautionary-tale/38406849#
Recently multiple well intentioned researchers argued that Omicron is the virus finally evolving to become optimally less virulent. We don’t know this, and importantly, there is no reason why virulence must decline if transmission is high. Selection acts on contagion not severity https://twitter.com/ct_bergstrom/status/1464758098006982656
Bruce Levin and Jim Bull wrote a very important paper about virulence evolution back in '94.
To paraphrase and generalize, virulence is often not so much a matter of evolutionary fine-tuning as a matter of "shit happens."
We need less focus on “another case detected”
We are wasting time
Free high quality masks
Avoid the “3 Cs” from Japan strategy esp if high risk
Free rapid tests
For nearly 2 years many of us have argued to lower barriers to testing--making tests, masks, and other tools to fight #covid FREE. FINALLY free home tests. Next, paid leave, child care.

Emphasizing Tests, Biden Vows to Fight Omicron With ‘Science and Speed’
