In COVID-19 clinical update #122, Dr. Griffin discusses vaccine availability and coverage among children, post-infection health impairments in children and adolescents, infection detection using salvia and nasopharyngeal samples, effectiveness of vaccines during delta dominance, durability of vaccine against severe outcomes, concern in the postvaccination era, infection rebound after Paxlovid & Molnupiravir, lack of improvement after adding ivermectin to standard care, duration of shedding of virus, how thromboprophylaxis reduces thromboembolism but increases major bleeding, multi-lineage neural and myelin dysregulation caused by infection, and the association between vaccination and post-acute infection.
