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. If the agency decides to recommend th...

CrossFit CEO Eric Roza would like to know if I have a primary care doctor. When I sheepishly tell him that I do not, he grins. I’ve just helped prove his point that the traditional primary care system, the one rooted in doctor’s offices and hospitals, isn’t working as it should. My lack of a doctor is “indicative of the problem,” he says. Traditional primary care “takes time, it takes money.

The FDA ’s Vaccine Expert Panel Recommends Approval of a J & J Booster for Anyone Who Had an Initial Shot
The Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) expert vaccine panel on Friday, Oct. 15, recommended a booster dose of the Johnson&Johnson-Janssen COVID-19 vaccine.

Why, When and How to Test At-Home for COVID-19
As we close in on two years of living with COVID-19, quick and accurate tests for COVID-19 remain an urgent priority. In fact, as schools reopen, businesses resume operations and people return to work, rapid testing could be the key to preventing Delta or any new variants of SARS-CoV-2 from flaring into even larger outbreaks. But that’s only if testing is used in the right way, at the right time and in the right places. With more opportunities for people to interact in public settings where the virus can spread, it’s never been more important to know who is infected and potentially seeding new COVID-19 infectio...

Men Are Now More Likely to Be Single Than Women. It ’s Not a Good Sign
Almost a third of adult single men live with a parent. Single men are much more likely to be unemployed, financially fragile and to lack a college degree than those with a partner. They’re also likely to have lower median earnings; single men earned less in 2019 than in 1990, even adjusting for inflation. Single women, meanwhile, earn the same as they did 30 years ago, but those with partners have increased their earnings by 50%. These are the some of the findings of a new Pew Research analysis of 2019 data on the growing gap between American adults who live with a partner and those who do not. While the study is les...

When Joe Silverman developed Crohn’s disease at age 21, the symptoms started out mild.
