Immunocompromised People

Since recombinant vaccine is not a live vaccine, it is not contraindicated in immunocompromised persons. However, it is not recommended by the ACIP at this time. The ACIP is expected to review the evidence for its use in immunocompromised persons and will modify vaccine policy as necessary. The CDC does...

Zoster Information

A reported history of zoster does not preclude vaccination, as repeat episodes of zoster have been confirmed in immunocompetent persons. The exact risk for and severity of zoster after a previous episode are unknown, but some experts believe it may be similar to those with no history of zoster. There...

Serologic Testing Recommendations

Although the CDC does not recommend serologic testing when vaccinating adults age 50 and older, if serologic evidence of varicella susceptibility is available to the health care provider, the CDC recommends that providers follow the guidelines for varicella vaccination recommended by the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP). Since the...

Preventing Infections

Advancing age and chronic illness are risk factors for herpes zoster and associated post-herpetic neuralgia. Approximately 99.5% of the U.S. population age 40 and older has serologic evidence of previous varicella infection. Thus, all older adults are at risk for zoster, although many cannot recall any previous history of chickenpox....

Meningococcal Conjugate Vaccine Updates

Meningococcal conjugate vaccine (MCV) is recommended for normal-risk children at 11–12 years of age, although children with certain medical conditions (such as sickle cell disease or apslenia) may benefit from immunization as early as 2 years of age. HIV-infected patients who are vaccinated should receive two doses of the vaccine....

Recent U.S. Preventive Services Task Force Findings

In 2018 the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) found sufficient evidence to recommend exercise interventions (supervised individual and group classes and physical therapy) to prevent falls in community-dwelling adults age 65 or older who are at increased risk for falls. It also found evidence to recommend that clinicians selectively...

Falling is Becoming More Frequent, Make Sure You’re Prepared

As our population ages, preventing falls is of increasing importance. Approximately 35%–40% of community-dwelling persons age 65 and older fall annually, with 5% of those who fall requiring hospitalization. In addition, it is estimated that up to 40% of nursing-home admissions are fall-related....

Primary Care Screening Outcomes

The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) found good evidence that patients at risk for adverse outcomes from alcohol abuse can be accurately identified in the primary care setting. They also found evidence that counseling interventions in the primary care setting can positively affect unhealthy drinking behaviors in adults engaging...

Limiting Your Daily Alcohol Intake

According to the 2017 hypertension guidelines from the American Heart Association and the American College of Cardiology, limiting daily alcohol intake to 1–2 drinks in men and 1 drink in women has the least impact on lowering systolic blood pressure (SBP) among non-pharmacologic interventions in hypertensive individuals, with an anticipated...
