HHS COVID-19 Update, 11/30/2020

ACIP Meeting Tomorrow: Tomorrow, December 1, 2020, from 2:00-5:00 pm EST, CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) will host an emergency virtual meeting. They have released the meeting agenda and have a live webcast link open to the public. The will be discussing further recommendations for prioritization for the initial ~40 million doses that will likely become available in December.  If you recall, they have already agreed that the #1 priority group is healthcare workers.  Tomorrow’s meeting of ACIP will decide who follows after healthcare workers for the first 40 million: Will it be (1) Adults aged 65+ (>53 Million); (2) Adults with high-risk medical conditions (>100 million); or (3) Essential workers (87 million).
is New Portal for Volunteers for Clinical Trials and Convalescent Plasma Donation:  How about a one-stop-shop for encouraging people to consider volunteering for prevention and treatment trials?  This is the place to go for those who either (1) have never had COVID-19 and are interested in participating in a prevention trial, or (2) have recovered from COVID-19 and would consider donating convalescent plasma to help others recover.  Today I signed up as a prevention volunteer through the portal and it was easy.  Check it out and share with others.

Takeaway:  The surge continues its climb.  Cases have now surpassed the summer peak.
