Oh wow, no BCG use in Italy, and only past in much of Europe! That catches the eye from a severity correlation standpoint…
MCHC PAUL VACCARO

MMR is actually given SQ I think...
Mairi Noverr
36:29
Correct, MMR is often given SQ, however can also be given IM - I just got a booster and she administered IM, not sure why
MCHC PAUL VACCARO
36:54
understood

For those previously vaccinated with MMR vaccine and with good antibody titer, do they need booster vaccine? Is antibody titer important or the live attenuated virus itself?
Mairi Noverr
44:18
No, the trained innate response is thought to last a year or 2. So need recent live vaccine booster to protect against sepsis.

We miss you Mairi! This is fascinating. Have you looked at the DTAP vaccine? Many more of the older populiation have received this. There was a big push for that vaccine for grandparents to recieve recently. Congratulations to both of you on this research !

How is supply chain for MMR vaccine?
Mairi Noverr
48:30
DTAP is not live attenuated vaccine
cmd
49:01
yep, Sub-Q
Elaine Lissner
49:05
Seconding the question about supply chain. And I just had MMR sub-Q 2 weeks ago. Would it have any difference sub-Q vs IM?
Mairi Noverr
49:32
No difference that I know of between SQ and IM for delivery.

Anyone with good MMR antibody titer, physicians won’t allow to get MMR vaccine. How to convince them to get booster vaccine?
Elaine Lissner
51:21
Is there anyone who could do and publish a rigorous study of different countries’ experiences, covering other factors? For example, American Samoa did really well after their measles outbreak and vaccination, but they also stopped all ships and planes.
MCHC PAUL VACCARO
52:34
this would be specific to reduce sepsis during COVID but not COVID itself, right?
Dr. Townley
53:27
Would you foresee a future where everyone gets a “system probiotic” yearly? Would this make sense with known pro/cons?
Elaine Lissner
53:52
I just went to my local pharmacy, said I might travel and wanted a booster and kept my mouth closed other than that, and no problem. I paid $110 out of pocket, though. Also, the serological testing COSTS and requires a second visit, increasing COVID exposure, one can argue.

MMR vaccination is given twice, with the second given 28 days after the first. For COVID-19 protection, do you recommend getting the second booster shot, or is just one sufficient?
Toby Cheramie
55:10
I went to my local Walgreens, too. They didn't ask any questions or requested a prescription. Insurance covered it 100%. This was the Walgreens on the corner of Veterans and Bonnebel, FYI.

Anything people can do to spread the word about enrollment?
