More Reasons to Get Vaccinations

Michael Roizen, M.D. By Thursday, 18 August 2022 11:37 AM EDT Current | Bio | Archive

I know you're weary of the whole COVID-19 thing, but nationally we're up to more than 100,000 new cases a day. That being the case, it's smart, once again, to mask indoors and in crowds and make wise decisions about where and with whom you hang out.

And even with the variants that are now around, there are a lot of reasons to make sure you and everyone in your family from age 6 months up is vaccinated and boosted (when appropriate).

A new study shows the second mRNA booster is providing significantly improved defense against Omicron BA.1 and BA.2/BA.2.12.1. And while those strains, along with BA.5, can infect people who are fully vaccinated, when that happens it's very unlikely to cause severe illness.

An analysis by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows that during the pandemic, superbug infections in U.S. hospitals surged, and deaths from these bugs increased by about 15% overall — with infection from carbapenem-resistant Acinetobacter bacteria, which cause pneumonia and wound, bloodstream and urinary tract infections, increasing by 78%.

The CDC also says that 29,400 people died from antimicrobial-resistant infections during the first year of the pandemic, and that of those nearly 40% acquired the infection in-hospital.
