Dear Friends,

The Food and Drug Administration released materials for the Vaccine and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee meeting regarding Pfizer’s submission for authorization of a COVID-19 vaccine.

The Department of Health and Human Services will distribute $523 million to over 9,000 nursing homes that have successfully implemented infection control practices to reduce the spread of COVID-19.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention published a study on Head Start and Early Head Start facilities who successfully implemented CDC guidelines, which allowed them to remain open for in-person learning.

The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency issued a warning of a global phishing and spear phishing campaign targeting the COVID-19 supply chain used to store and transport a vaccine at safe temperatures.

The National Institutes of Health Director Dr. Francis Collins wrote about a study on health care worker immunity to COVID-19 lasting many months following recovery from the virus.

Until next time, this is your doctor's note.
