If you haven ’t felt like yourself lately, you’re not alone. As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to impact communities across the country, it’s not surprising that U.S. depression rates have skyrocketed in the last year. According to a recent survey from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC ), over a third of Americans are experiencing symptoms of depression and anxiety – up from just 11 percent reported in March 2020. With a heightened focus on mental health, public figures… (Source: bizjournals.com Health Care:Pharmaceuticals headlines)

FDA Committee Recommends COVID-19 Vaccine for Children 5-11 Years Old
COVID-19 vaccines are already authorized for children ages 12 and older, and the shots now have the support of a U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) expert panel for younger children ages 5 to 11. In a 17 to 0 vote, with one abstention, the committee recommended the COVID-19 vaccine made by Pfizer-BioNTech for the youngest group yet to potentially get immunized against the disease in the US. The committee recommended a two-dose regimen at one-third the dosage approved for adults. The FDA now takes the committee’s advice into consideration before making a final recommendation.

COVID-19 Boosters Are Now More Popular Than First Shots
When Americans divide themselves into camps, they stick to them fiercely: Democrats versus Republicans, pro-life versus pro-choice, gun rights versus gun control. Add to that, as has become apparent over the course of the past year, those who are pro- versus anti-coronavirus vaccines. As with so many other polarizing issues, your position on getting or not getting inoculated against COVID-19 has become more than a medical question. It’s morphed into a form of cultural identifier, a sign of your membership in one tribe or another. More than ever, that’s becoming clear as booster shots are rolled out around the n...
