CDC Warns Of Another ‘Tripledemic’ This Fall, Promotes Shots For Covid-19, The Flu, And RSV
Is COVID hysteria back?
According to new reports, the CDC is looking to prevent what they dub a “tripledemic” made up of three respiratory illnesses.
These illnesses include COVID-19, the flu, and RSV.
Vaccines to stave off the flu, a new COVID variant and RSV could help avert another tripledemic this fall. Unless the public is too crisis-fatigued to care. https://t.co/fg8R9KX2rr

Per the CDC, immunocompromised Americans, and those aged 60 and older, are encouraged to get a dose of the recently approved respiratory syncytial virus vaccine.
The CDC is also pushing for these Americans to get updated COVID-19 vaccines. In addition to flu shots.
From the CDC’s Thursday Press Release:
Adults at the highest risk for severe RSV illness include older adults, adults with chronic heart or lung disease, adults with weakened immune systems, and adults living in nursing homes or long-term care facilities.
These vaccines provide an opportunity to help protect older adults against severe RSV illness at a time when multiple respiratory infections are likely to circulate.
Dr. Ofer Levy, the director for Boston Children’s Hospital vaccine program and an advisor for the Food and Drug Administration, called this “tripledemic” response a “godsend” because of its well-timed availability.
He also stated he believes Americans should get all three shots at once. Even though other experts have warned that it would be safer to space each one out to avoid complications.
U.S. health officials are hoping that widespread use of three vaccines this year will head off another “tripledemic” of respiratory illnesses, like the one seen last winter. Here's what experts say about who should receive which vaccines, and when. https://t.co/Q1U38jWfKO

From The Post Millennial:
On Thursday, it was revealed that CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky had endorsed an advisory committee’s recommendations regarding the use of RSV vaccines developed by GSK and Pfizer, the first of their kind approved for use in the United States. The shots are scheduled to be available in the fall.
It is apparent that this initiative has the backing of the Joe Biden administration. It is also known that pharmaceutical companies have increased production of new vaccines as the country changes gear in anticipation for the colder months ahead.
