My husband had the pleasure of meeting @PeterHotez on the WH vaccine tour. Lets just say he had a “super” great experience and said Dr Hotez was an incredibly humble and genuine soul. We just want to keep our 22 month old son safe. Almost to the finish line with vaccine approval

Many thanks ⁦@KateBolduan⁩ for hosting me⁩ on good news for Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine for under 5. The requirement for a 3rd dose is not a surprise given how that typically would produce a substantial rise in virus neutralizing antibodies needed vs omicron sub variants

I have some optimism that this will go well at FDA advisory meeting and we might begin immunizing under 5 beginning next month

The Great Barrington Declaration launched a new think tank, Brownstone, which calls itself "the spiritual child" of the GBD Brownstone is pushing QAnon-level conspiracies about monkeypox It called for the execution of its critics It published a 'hit list' of named scientists
The Brownstone Institute is now so committed to undermining public health in the United States that they are pushing a conspiracy theory that a monkeypox outbreak modeling exercise conducted last year suggests that this year's outbreak was a deliberate release or something.

Pandemic minimizer and #UrgencyofNormal advocate Dr. Lucy McBride recently Tweeted a year-old article about “#coronaphobia”. Whether she understands it or not, this is an old antivax trope: To pathologize fear of infectious disease as mental illness. respectfulinsolence.com/2022…
