CDC is about getting healthier people and making this world a better place. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) goal is to research and learn about diseases to vaccinate people to prevent them. The first ever disease to be eradicated was the small pox and today there is no one who has the small pox's.

What is the CDC recommending people do to minimize their risk of contracting Swine Flu?

User Avatar
CDC Suggests: Washing hands. Alot. Warm water, soap, for at least 20 seconds. Alcohol based hand sanitizers. Anti-VIRAL cleaners. Not just anti-bacterial. If you're sick, stay home. Do not continue with work, school, etc. If you have flu like symptoms (fever >101.0*, cough, body aches, congestion, head ache, etc) that are not getting better within 4-5 days - seek medical attention.

Asked in Swine Flu (H1N1/09), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)

Local retailers are offering flu shots right now that they claim include the H1N1 strain while the CDC states that an H1N1 vaccine will not be available until mid October - what gives?

User Avatar
The seasonal flu shots for the 2009-2010 flu season in the Northern Hemisphere do not contain the vaccine for Pandemic A-H1N1/09 Swine Flu. To be fully protected from influenza this season, you will need to take the regular seasonal flu shot and then also another shot of the Pandemic A-H1N1/09 Swine Flu vaccine. Children will need two shots of the swine flu vaccine a month apart if they are under ten. As of today, September 16, 2009, the US Federal Drug Administration (FDA) is just finishing approvals for use of the new A-H1N1/09 Pandemic flu vaccine. It is not yet on the market, so if you are being told it is in the flu shot already out, then they are mistaken. There are different strains of the H1N1 virus and one of them is a typical and frequently seen seasonal flu strain. The 2009 - 2010 seasonal flu vaccine does contain a strain of H1N1 flu that is not the same as the A-H1N1/09 Pandemic swine flu. So it is likely that which has caused the confusion in this case. The seasonal flu vaccine for the 2009-2010 flu season contains the following strains of virus : A/Brisbane/59/2007(H1N1)-like virus; A/Brisbane/10/2007 (H3N2)-like virus; B/Brisbane 60/2008-like antigens.
Asked in HIV and AIDS, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)

What are CDC stages of HIV?

User Avatar
The CDC classifies the stages of HIV using both a letter and a number (i.e. A3, B1). The letter (A through C) represents a person's immunological status. This can be affected by other diseases or illnesses the patient develops, like tuberculosis, pneumonia, etc. The number (1 through 3) represents a person's virological status. This is affected by the viral load, or amount of virus, present in the person. A CDC classification of A1 is the "best" a person can be. A classification of C3 is the "worst" a person can be according to the scale. According to the system, a person can never improve on the scale (i.e. if you are labeled A2, you can never become A1, even if you get better). In this way, the classification system represents the worst an HIV+ person has ever been, not necessarily their current status.

Asked in Infectious Diseases, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)

Does the CDC have the right to force people to get a vaccination for an infectious disease such as the smallpox is it is a suspected act of bioterrorism why or why not?

User Avatar
CDC has a detailed plan to protect Americans against the use of smallpox as a biological weapon. This plan includes the creation and use of special teams of health care and public health workers. If a smallpox case is found, these teams will take steps immediately to control the spread of the disease. Smallpox was wiped out through specific public health actions, including vaccination, and these actions will be used again. * If a smallpox outbreak happens, public health officials will use television, radio, newspapers, the Internet and other channels to inform members of the public about what to do to protect themselves and their families. * Officials will tell people where to go for care if they think they have smallpox. * Smallpox patients will be isolated (kept away from other people who could get sick from them) and will receive the best medical care possible. Isolation prevents the virus from spreading to others. * Anyone who has had contact with a smallpox patient will be offered smallpox vaccination as soon as possible. Then, the people who have had contact with those individuals will also be vaccinated. Following vaccination, these people will need to watch for any signs of smallpox. People who have been exposed to smallpox may be asked to take their temperatures regularly and report the results to their health department. * The smallpox vaccine may also be offered to those who have not been exposed, but would like to be vaccinated. At local clinics, the risks and benefits of the vaccine will be explained and professionals will be available to answer questions. * No one will be forced to be vaccinated, even if they have been exposed to smallpox. * To prevent smallpox from spreading, anyone who has been in contact with a person with smallpox but who decides not to get the vaccine may need to be isolated for at least 18 days. During this time, they will be checked for symptoms of smallpox. * People placed in isolation will not be able to go to work. Steps will be taken to care for their everyday needs (e.g., food and other needs). Because smallpox does not spread as easily as measles or flu, measures like vaccination and isolation allowed public health officials to wipe out the disease. *This text was taken straight from the CDC website.

What are some governmental measures taken to deal with the potential pandemic of bird flu?

User Avatar
For the previously known subtype of bird flu that infected humans (H5N1), there is a vaccine developed and stockpiled by the US in case a pandemic begins. All cases of avian flu in humans are reported to the CDC and WHO (World Health Organization) and the cases are closely monitored. So far there are no known human to human transmissions except under extremely rare circumstances of this rare avian flu. There is also a new strain of the subtype of avian (bird) flu known as H7N9 which was just discovered in China and announced March 31, 2013. It was not known to have infected humans before. There have been several related deaths and WHO, Chinese authorities, WHO member nations, the US CDC and counterparts in other countries are currently investigating to try to find the source. Preliminary data indicate that it may contain signs of having been mutated and transmitted from a mammal and not from birds in this case. The CDC is working to isolate a strain of H7N9 that is a candidate for use to develop a vaccine, but this is obviously at very early stages since it is a matter of days from the first discovery. Monitoring and awareness for reporting are heightened world wide. All cases are restricted to local outbreaks in Shanghai and other Chinese cities. The families and close contacts of those known to have been infected are being monitored for signs of the transmission of the disease-causing virus. No indications of human to human transfer have been found to date. All activity and response is in the very early stages and only 16 cases have been identified as of April 5, 2013, with six deaths.
