CDC Shifts Recommendation Surrounding Masks In Light of Delta Variant
On July 27th, 2021, the CDC added the following recommendations due to the widespread surge of the Delta variant of the Covid-19 virus:
- Updated information for fully vaccinated people given new evidence on the B.1.617.2 (Delta) variant currently circulating in the United States.
- Added a recommendation for fully vaccinated people to wear a mask in public indoor settings in areas of substantial or high transmission.
- Added information that fully vaccinated people might choose to wear a mask regardless of the level of transmission, particularly if they are immunocompromised or at increased risk for severe disease from COVID-19, or if they have someone in their household who is immunocompromised, at increased risk of severe disease or not fully vaccinated.
- Added a recommendation for fully vaccinated people who have a known exposure to someone with suspected or confirmed COVID-19 to be tested 3-5 days after exposure, and to wear a mask in public indoor settings for 14 days or until they receive a negative test result.
- CDC recommends universal indoor masking for all teachers, staff, students, and visitors to schools, regardless of vaccination status.
Further evidence demonstrates that vaccinated people can transmit the virus and people have been shown to have the same viral loads as unvaccinated individuals, when infected. Vaccines continue to protect people from serious infections requiring hospitalization and death.
FDA and CDC Clear J& J Covid Vaccine To Be Administered Again; What to Know
The FDA and CDC, on April 23rd, said the Johnson & Johnson Covid-19 vaccine could continue being administered to the public, with vaccine fact sheets updated to warn of rare blood clot risks. You can read more, here.
Johnson & Johnson Covid-19 Vaccine Temporarily Halted Amid Blood Clot Concerns
Today, the FDA and CDC released a statement regarding the decision to halt administering of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine after six cases (of more than 6.8 million total doses), resulted in cases of severe blood clotting.
As of April 12, more than 6.8 million doses of the Johnson & Johnson (Janssen) vaccine have been administered in the U.S. CDC and FDA are reviewing data involving six reported U.S. cases of a rare and severe type of blood clot in individuals after receiving the J&J vaccine. In these cases, a type of blood clot called cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVST) was seen in combination with low levels of blood platelets (thrombocytopenia). All six cases occurred among women between the ages of 18 and 48, and symptoms occurred 6 to 13 days after vaccination.
CDC will convene a meeting of the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) on Wednesday to further review these cases and assess their potential significance. FDA will review that analysis as it also investigates these cases. Until that process is complete, we are recommending a pause in the use of this vaccine out of an abundance of caution. This is important, in part, to ensure that the health care provider community is aware of the potential for these adverse events and can plan for proper recognition and management due to the unique treatment required with this type of blood clot.
