Flu, RSV, COVID-19 and other Respiratory Threats this Fall and Winter
Join us Tuesday, Nov. 29, 2-3 p.m. ET, for our next CDC EPIC webinar, Flu, RSV, COVID-19 and other Respiratory Threats this Fall and Winter. Many respiratory viruses circulate year-round in the United States, with more activity in fall and winter. Right now, the U.S. is experiencing levels of respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), influenza (flu), and rhinovirus/enterovirus (RV/EV) that are higher than usual for this time of year, especially among children. COVID-19 also continues to circulate across the United States.
CDC experts Heidi Moline, MD, Medical Officer, National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases; and Fatimah Dawood, MD, Medical Epidemiologist, National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases, will discuss what CDC is seeing nationwide with these viruses, who’s at higher risk for severe illness, what people can do to protect themselves, their families, and other people around them, and how to care for people who do get sick.
Due to technical difficulties the ASL interpreter was not captured during the live recording.
