Frederick Chen, MD, discusses the connection between climate change and public health, highlighting the effects of extreme weather events, vector-borne illnesses, and implications for patients of all ages.
A new COVID variant is leading to a rise in cases and hospitalizations across the country. With the FDA’s recent approval of updated COVID boosters — and flu and RSV season right around the corner — the spotlight is once again on vaccines and vaccine hesitancy. Data shows that while the majority of Americans have positive views of childhood vaccines, acceptance of COVID vaccines remains much lower.
Join host Alex McDonald, MD, and guest Dr. Sandra Fryhofer, MD, for our upcoming PermanenteDocs Chat on patient trust and vaccines, co-presented with the American Medical Association. They’ll discuss what drives vaccine hesitancy, vaccine safety and effectiveness, and strategies physicians can use to build trust with patients. They’ll also cover the current COVID variants, booster recommendations, and flu and RSV shot updates. Don’t miss this one!
Sandra Fryhofer, MD, AMA liaison to the CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices
