The Prince William Health District What You Should Know 

What’s the difference between a vaccine booster dose and an  additional primary series Covid-19 vaccine dose? Which one will I need? 

A booster dose is a COVID-19 vaccine dose administered to someone who initially  had good protection from the primary vaccine series or from a first booster dose, but in  whom this protection may have weakened over time. 

Standard (first) booster doses are recommended for all individuals 12 years and  older. The recommended interval for the booster dose is based on the vaccine type received for the primary series. In most people, the interval is: 

  • At least 5 months after mRNA 2-dose primary vaccination series or
  •  At least 2 months after Janssen single dose primary vaccination 

Information on accessing a COVID-19 booster dose can be found  at vaccinate.virginia.gov

An additional primary series dose is a COVID-19 vaccine dose administered to  someone with a moderately or severely weakened immune system because their initial  immune response after completing the primary vaccine series may have been  insufficient to provide them with strong protection. 

  • A 3-dose primary series is recommended for people ages 5 years and older  who are moderately or severely immunocompromised at the time of vaccination. The same mRNA vaccine product should be used for all three  doses of the primary series. The 3rd dose is administered at least 4 weeks  after the second dose. 
  • For moderately or severely immunocompromised people ages 18 years and  older who received a primary Janssen vaccination, a second (additional)  dose using an mRNA COVID-19 vaccine is recommended at least 4 weeks  later. Those people who receive an additional dose will also be eligible for a  standard vaccine booster dose (if they also meet the age and time requirements for  a booster) and for a second booster dose when they are eligible.

Covid-19 Cases Are On The Rise While Hospitalizations Remain Low

The number of COVID-19 cases in Prince William Health District Jurisdiction (Prince William County, City of Manassas and Manassas Park) and across northern Virginia has continued to rise in the recent week. What does this mean? It’s time for PWHD residents to assess their individual and family risks related to the upward trend in case counts, as well as to take additional precautions if necessary. Although hospitalizations remain low, this is only because many have received a first, second, third, and booster shots. Disease increases are likely related to the emergence of new Omicron sub-variants (BA.2, BA.2.12.1) and fewer people using mitigation measures such as masking or distancing from others.

Approaches such as wearing a well-fitting facemask, distancing from others, avoiding crowded settings, and improved ventilation all remain effective at preventing the spread of COVID-19. However, given “pandemic fatigue” and widespread reluctance to use these measures, the two most effective strategies to prevent disease and outbreaks are:

1. If you are ill with symptoms that might be COVID-19, stay away from others and get tested; and
2. Make sure you are up to date on vaccinations, including receiving all the booster doses for which you’re eligible.

Residents are encouraged to visit the CDC’s website to learn more about the community level impact and related CDC recommendations. Understanding the risk based on the current level of community impact will help individuals and families know which precautions to take to protect themselves, their family and the greater community from the ongoing spread of COVID-19.

For communities with a “medium” level of impact, the CDC recommends the following individual and household-level prevention measures:
• People who are immunocompromised or at high risk for severe disease should consult their healthcare provider and consider taking additional precautions, such as wearing masks and social distancing. Residents should also consider self-testing to detect infection before having contact with people who are at high risk of severe disease.
• Get fully vaccinated and boosted, if eligible.
o Information about who is eligible for boosters and booster recommendations is posted on the CDC website.
o To find a COVID-19 vaccine provider, visit vaccines.gov.
• Follow CDC recommendations for isolation and quarantine, including getting tested if you are exposed to COVID-19 or have symptoms of COVID-19.

The Prince William Health District What You Should Know
Protect Yourself from Tick Bites

Know where to expect ticks. Blacklegged ticks (the ticks that cause Lyme disease) live in moist and
humid environments, particularly in and near wooded or grassy areas. You may get a tick on you
during outdoor activities around your home or when walking through leaves and bushes. To avoid
ticks, walk in the center of trails and avoid walking through tall bushes or other vegetation.

Repel ticks on skin and clothing. Use Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)- registered insect
repellents containing DEET, picaridin, IR3535, oil of lemon eucalyptus, para-menthane-diol, or
2-undecanone. EPA’s helpful search tool can help you find the product that best suits your needs.
Always follow product instructions. Parents should apply this product to their children, avoiding
hands, eyes, and mouth. Use products that contain permethrin on clothing. Treat clothing and gear,
such as boots, pants, socks and tents with products containing 0.5% permethrin. It remains
protective through several washings. Pre-treated clothing is available and may be protective
longer.

• The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has an online tool to help you select the
repellent that is best for you and your family.
• For detailed information about preventing ticks on pets and in your yard, see Lyme Disease
Prevention and Control.
• For detailed information for outdoor workers, see NIOSH Safety and Health Topic: Tick-borne
Diseases.

The Prince William Health District What You Should Know

Counterfeit At-Home OTC COVID-19 Diagnostic Tests 

The FDA is aware of counterfeit at-home over-the-counter (OTC) COVID-19 diagnostic tests being distributed or used in the United States. These counterfeit tests should  not be used or distributed. 

Counterfeit COVID-19 tests are tests that are not authorized, cleared, or approved by the FDA for distribution or use in the United States, but are made to look like authorized tests so the users will think they are the real, FDA-authorized test. The performance of these counterfeit tests has not been adequately established and the FDA is concerned  about the risk of false results when people use these unauthorized tests. 

You may risk unknowingly spreading COVID-19 and may delay or stop appropriate medical treatment for COVID-19 if you use a counterfeit test.

The FDA has a list of authorized at-home OTC COVID-19 diagnostic tests. For more  information about each test, including the Letter of Authorization and authorized  labeling, see In Vitro Diagnostics EUAs: Tables of IVD EUAs

What are some signs that an at-home OTC COVID-19 diagnostic test  may be counterfeit? 

  • Poor print quality of images or text on the outside box label for the product or in the instructions for use included in the box.
  • Missing information on the outside box label for the product, such as the lot number, expiration date, or barcode or QR codes.
  • Grammatical or spelling errors found in product labeling.
  • Components of the kits do not match the content description (for example, missing Instructions for Use, missing or unfilled components, different number of components than listed).
  • Tradename for product printed on component or box labels differ from the authorized labeling found on the FDA website: At-Home OTC COVID-19 Diagnostic Tests | FDA.
  • The box label or printed instructions for use look different from the authorized labeling found on the FDA website: At-Home OTC COVID-19 Diagnostic Tests | FDA.

V-Safe Sends Out Booster Reminders But Is Not to be confused With  VDH calls/text Reminders For Covid-19 Booster Doses

V-Safe is an opt-in app that people can choose to register their vaccines received and  any adverse events experienced after each dose. Opting into the app provides more  information to the CDC to track adverse events after vaccination in addition to other  means.

Text Example from V-Safe:

 

 

 

 

 

This has caused some confusion to persons who think V-Safe is telling the  person to get a 2nd booster. This text is not coming from VDH. A few differences:

  • VDH Booster texts are not personalized (does not have names)
  • VDH Booster texts indicate it is from the Virginia Department of Health
  • VDH Booster link does not have vsafe.cdc.gov in it. It either links to vase, vaccinate.virginia.gov, or another LHD-specific link.
  • VDH Booster texts do not currently offer the ability to opt out within the text.

People can report their received doses to V-Safe or choose to opt out of V-Safe by  responding to the text. This information in V-safe is to further gather information and  data about vaccines.

Federal Judge Overturns CDC Travel Mask Mandate

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) won’t enforce the transit mask  mandate on planes and public transportation for now after Judge overturns it. This ruling was based not on the CDC recommendation that masks help prevent the  spread of COVID-19. The verdict is based on how the CDC handled the mandate and  guidance to the TSA. The ruling doesn’t stop individual airlines from mandating mask wearing on their planes. States and cities can also order mask mandates.

COVID-19 continues to spread and affect the Commonwealth. Masks continue to be  one of the ways to help limit the spread of COVID-19 when worn in large crowds  indoors. This Court’s ruling does not mean masks shouldn’t be worn if you have been in  contact with someone who has COVID-19 or you have symptoms of COVID-19 and  need to quarantine for the recommended days by the CDC.

Situations where you should always wear a mask:

CDC Mask Order For Travel Remains In Effect
CDC Mask Order Remains in Effect and CDC Realigns Travel Health Notice System
• The CDC Mask Order remains in effect while CDC assesses the potential impact of the rise of cases on severe disease, including hospitalizations and deaths, and healthcare system capacity. TSA will extend the security directive and emergency amendment for 15 days, through May 3, 2022.
• CDC will also update its Travel Health Notice system for international destinations. To help the public understand when the highest level of concern is most urgent, this new system will reserve Level 4 travel health notices for special circumstances, such as rapidly escalating case trajectory or extremely high case counts, emergence of a new variant of concern, or healthcare infrastructure collapse. Levels 3, 2, and 1 will continue to be primarily determined by 28-day incidence or case counts. The new level system will be effective April 18, 2022.
VDH Partners With Walgreens For Covid-19 Test
If you feel sick and think you may have COVID-19, getting an antigen or PCR test is important to see if you have the illness so you can take action quickly (such as isolating yourself from family members, if needed).
Who Should Get Tested
• People with symptoms or signs of COVID-19 regardless of vaccination status.
• Most people who have had close contact with someone known or suspected to have COVID-19 including:
o Fully vaccinated people [Español] should be tested 3-5 days following a known exposure to someone with suspected or confirmed COVID-19, even if you don’t have symptoms.
o People who are not fully vaccinated should be tested immediately after an exposure and again at 5-7 days following exposure if the first test is negative.
• People who tested positive for COVID-19 within the past 3 months and recovered, do not need to get tested after exposure as long as they do not have symptoms.
Appointments are scheduled through the Walgreens website. Enter your zip code and select “Rapid Antigen Test ” to locate tests that are covered as part of this partnership. The form to schedule an appointment may ask about your symptoms and health insurance information. Note that health insurance is not required to schedule an appointment, and patients do not need to pay for testing.

VDH Partners With Walgreens For Covid-19 Test

If you feel sick and think you may have COVID-19, getting an antigen (or PCR) test is important to see if you have the illness so you can take action quickly (such as isolating yourself from family members, if needed).

Who Should Get Tested

People with symptoms or signs of COVID-19 regardless of vaccination status. Most people who have had close contact with someone known or suspected to have COVID-19 including: Fully vaccinated people [Español] people should be tested 3-5 days following a known exposure to someone with suspected or confirmed COVID-19, even if you don’t have symptoms. People who are not fully vaccinated should be tested immediately after an exposure and again at 5-7 days following exposure if the first test is negative. People who tested positive for COVID-19 within the past 3 months and recovered, do not need to get tested after exposure as long as they do not have symptoms.

Appointments are scheduled through the Walgreens website. Enter your zip code and select “Rapid Antigen Test” to locate tests that are covered as part of this partnership. The form to schedule an appointment may ask about your symptoms and health insurance information. Note that health insurance is not required to schedule an appointment, and patients do not need to pay for testing.

Governor Glenn Youngkin Announces More Than Seven Million Virginians Have Received One Dose of a COVID-19 Vaccine

(RICHMOND, Va.) — Governor Glenn Youngkin announced yesterday that more than seven million Virginians have received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine since the Virginia Department of Health (VDH) launched the state’s vaccination campaign in late December 2020. VDH reached this vaccination milestone as we celebrate National Public Health Week.

That figure of 7,000,752 represents 81.5% of Virginia’s total population of 8,590,563 people and 92.4% of the adult population of 6,724,143 Virginians 18 years of age and older. Of those, 2,938,260 Virginians have received their recommended booster or third dose of vaccine. Vaccines are one of the many defenses to prevent hospitalizations, or death from Covid-19.

 Who Should Get A Booster Dose?

 Everyone age 12 and older is eligible to get a COVID-19 booster dose:

  • Moderna recipients age 18 and older should get a booster at least 5 months after second shot.
  • Pfizer recipients age 12 and older should get a booster at least 5 months after second shot.
  • Johnson & Johnson recipients age 18 and older should get a Pfizer or Moderna booster at least 2 months after initial shot.
  • Children younger than 12: a booster is not recommended at this time.

Adults age 50 and older and some immunocompromised individuals are now eligible to get a second Pfizer or Moderna booster dose at least 4 months after their first booster (whether they received a Pfizer, Moderna, or Johnson & Johnson booster).

Older adults—especially those with underlying medical conditions—and people with compromised immune systems are at higher risk of severe COVID-19, and are among those most likely to benefit from the additional protection of a second booster shot.

The CDC recommends that people who received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine get the Pfizer or Moderna booster. People who got a Pfizer or Moderna vaccine are advised to get the same booster as their initial vaccine, but allows them to mix and match (i.e., get a different COVID-19 booster than their initial vaccine) depending on preference or availability—with the exception of adolescents age 12-17 who are only eligible to receive the Pfizer vaccine.

The emergence of the Omicron variant and subvariant BA.2 underscores the importance of vaccination, boosters, and preventive efforts to protect against COVID-19. The COVID-19 vaccines continue to be highly effective in reducing risk of severe disease, hospitalization, and death. CDC recommendations on booster doses are based on the latest data, which show that booster doses significantly increase protection from the Omicron variant, with the goal of ensuring that people have optimal protection against COVID-19 infection, severe illness, and death.

FDA Authorizes And CDC Recommends A Second Booster For Older  People And Certain Immunocompromised Individuals 

On March 29, 2022, the F.D.A. authorized a second booster dose of either the Pfizer BioNTech vaccine or the Moderna vaccine (mRNA vaccines) for older people and  certain immunocompromised individuals. 

  • FDA amended the emergency use authorization and CDC updated guidance: 
  • People ages 12 years and older who are moderately or severely immunocompromised may choose to receive a second booster dose using an mRNA COVID-19 vaccine at least 4 months after the first booster dose. 
  • Adults ages 50 years and older who are not moderately or severely

immunocompromised may choose to receive a second booster dose using an mRNA  COVID-19 vaccine at least 4 months after the first booster dose. 

  • Adults ages 18–49 years who are not moderately or severely immunocompromised and who received Janssen COVID-19 Vaccine as both their primary series dose and booster dose may receive a second booster dose using an mRNA COVID-19 vaccine  at least 4 months after the first Janssen booster dose. 

 

  •          If the adult is ages 18-49 and received a J&J primary dose and an mRNA booster, no 2nd booster is currently recommended. 
  •  If the adult is ages 50+ and received a J&J primary dose and an mRNA booster,  they can receive a 2nd mRNA booster 4 months after the previous booster dose.

Protect Your Health: World Tuberculosis Day was March 24, 2022

Tuberculosis (TB) is a serious health condition that usually affects the lungs. When someone is
sick with TB, it’s called active TB or TB disease. Active TB can spread from person to person
through the air, like when someone with active TB sneezes or coughs.

What is latent tuberculosis?
Sometimes, you can have TB but not feel sick. This is called latent tuberculosis infection (LTBI).
If you have LTBI, you may not know it — so you need to get tested.
Talk to your doctor about getting tested for LTBI if you:

• Were born in or have lived in a country where TB is common — for example, Mexico, the
Philippines, Vietnam, India, or China
• Live or have lived in a large group setting — for example, a homeless shelter, nursing home,
or a prison
• Have HIV or another condition that weakens your immune system (the system in the body that
fights infection)
• Your doctor should test you for TB before starting HUMIRA

Remember, LTBI doesn’t cause any signs or symptoms — so the only way to know if you have it is to
get tested. That’s why it’s important to talk to your doctor if you’re at risk for LTBI.

Masks are most effective when worn consistently and correctly, and when combined with other layers
of prevention, such as distancing, washing hands, covering coughs and sneezes, avoiding poorly
ventilated spaces, and staying home when sick. While all masks provide some level of protection,
properly fitted respirators provide the highest level of protection. Find a Free N95 Respirator

We Still Have Much To Learn About The Risks Of COVID-19 For Newborns Of People With COVID-19

However we do know these facts:
• Although the absolute risks are low, if you are pregnant or were recently pregnant, you are more likely to get very sick from COVID-19 compared to people who are not pregnant. Additionally, if you have COVID-19 during pregnancy, you are at increased risk of complications that can affect your pregnancy and developing baby.
• Most newborns of people who had COVID-19 during pregnancy do not have COVID-19 when they are born.
• Some newborns have tested positive for COVID-19 shortly after birth. We don’t know if these newborns got the virus before, during, or after birth.
• Most newborns who tested positive for COVID-19 had mild or no symptoms and recovered. Reports say some newborns developed severe COVID-19 illness.

• People who are not up to date with their COVID-19 vaccines who are prioritized for expanded
community screening for COVID-19.
• People regardless of vaccination status who have been asked or referred to get testing by
their school, workplace, healthcare provider, state, tribal, local, or territorial health department.
• People who plan to travel or who have recently returned from travel with some exceptions for
fully vaccinated people.
• If possible, people who participate in activities that are higher risk for COVID-19 exposure
(e.g. attending large events where social distancing is not possible, or being in crowded indoor
settings).
• If possible, people who plan to visit someone at high-risk for developing severe COVID-19.

Interim Clinical Considerations for COVID-19 Vaccination Guidance Vaccinations For second Dose from
3-4 weeks to 5-8 weeks For Certain Individuals and Age groups

The CDC updated its COVID-19 vaccination guidance with additional information to help vaccine
providers determine the optimal interval between the first and second dose of an mRNA vaccine
series, based on the individual patient.

Updated Interim Clinical Care Considerations for COVID-19 Vaccination

What does this mean for you and your questions about getting a second dose in the mRNA COVID-19
series.

Q: Can you explain this new guidance that CDC is providing related to dose intervals for mRNA
primary series vaccination?

A: CDC is providing healthcare providers with additional information to factor into COVID-19
vaccine recommendations for their patients. Some people ages 12 through 64 years—and especially
males ages 12 through 39 years—may benefit from getting their second mRNA COVID-19 vaccine dose 8
weeks after receiving their first dose, instead of after the FDA-approved or FDA-authorized 3
weeks (Pfizer-BioNTech) or 4 weeks (Moderna). Recent safety and effectiveness New data illustrates
that a longer time interval between the first and second mRNA COVID-19 vaccine dose gives the body
a chance to build a stronger immune response, increasing the effectiveness of these vaccines, and
offering individuals greater protection against COVID-19. A longer interval between primary doses
can also help lower the rare risk of myocarditis and pericarditis following vaccination. Although rare,                                                                                 some cases have been reported—mostly among adolescent and young adult males—after receiving the                                                                            Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna vaccines.

Q: For whom might an 8-week interval between the 1st and 2nd doses of mRNA COVID-19 vaccines be
especially optimal?

A: The 8-week interval is optimal for patients ages 12 through 64 years—and particularly males
ages 12 through 39 years—who are not moderately or severely immunocompromised, and for whom there
is not increased concern about community transmission or severe disease.

Q: Would an interval between the 1st and 2nd doses of mRNA COVID-19 vaccines longer than 8 weeks be
even better?

A: Extending the interval beyond this time has not been shown to provide additional benefits.

Q: Are mRNA vaccine doses administered later than the recommended interval valid?

A: mRNA vaccine doses administered at any time after the recommended interval are valid and do not
need to be repeated.

The Prince William Health District What You Should Know

Immunocompromised individuals aged 18 years and older who received a Johnson & Johnson Vaccine

Immunocompromised individuals aged 18 years and older who received a Johnson & Johnson Vaccine (J&J) primary vaccine are now advised to get an additional dose of an mRNA vaccine at least four weeks after the first dose of J&J. At least two months after receiving the additional dose, they should receive a booster dose of any COVID-19 vaccine, for a total of three doses. Per CDC, an mRNA vaccine is preferred over the use of J&J vaccine for primary and booster vaccination. Some recipients of the J&J vaccine may have already received a booster dose (Pfizer, Moderna, or J&J vaccine), without having had the second (additional) mRNA vaccine dose. In this situation, regardless of type and timing of vaccine received as the second dose, a Pfizer vaccine or a Moderna vaccine should be received as the third dose at least two months after dose two.

CDC also updated vaccine recommendations for patients who received passive antibody products such as monoclonal antibodies or convalescent plasma. For those who previously received these products for pre-exposure or post-exposure prophylaxis against COVID-19 or treatment of COVID-19, there is now no recommended waiting period for COVID-19 vaccination.

If you have recently been exposed or tested positive for COVID-19, it can be confusing to know how long you should quarantine for but there’s a new tool that can figure it out. “You can plug in the date that you tested positive or your symptoms began and see when your isolation is supposed to end and when you need to keep wearing a mask,” Virginia Department of Health Epidemiologist Program Manager Elena Diskin said. Before trusting Google to determine how long to stay quarantined, go to the VDH’s online calculator.

The Prince William Health District What You Should Know
Self-Testing At Home or Anywhere

Self-tests for COVID-19 give rapid results and can be taken anywhere, regardless of your vaccination status or whether or not you have symptoms.

  • They detect current infection and are sometimes also called “home tests,” “at-home tests,” or “over-the-counter (OTC) tests.”
  • They give your result in a few minutes and are different from laboratory-based tests that may take days to return your result.
  • Self-tests along with vaccination, wearing a well-fitted mask, and physical distancing, help protect you and others by reducing the chances of spreading COVID-19.
  • Self-tests do not detect antibodies which would suggest a previous infection and they do not measure your level of immunity. Free tests are also available through local health departments. Order free tests at COVIDtests.gov

Buy tests online or in pharmacies and retail stores. Private health insurance may reimburse the cost of purchasing self-tests. Visit FDA’s website

Closed.

Prince William Health Department Transitioning COVID-19 Testing to Various Locations

The Prince William Health District (PWHD) is expanding testing with the recent addition of the
CTC+ initiative, a vendor operated van with testing staff that will travel throughout the region in
support of expanding testing to communities that have low access to testing. The initiative
involves the transitioning from the Community Testing Center (CTC) which will be closed to provide
testing at flexible community testing sites.

The Community Testing Center located at 7 County Complex Court, Wooodbridge, VA. has stopped
operations Thursday February 10, 2022. The new testing initiative will begin operation on or
about February 15, 2022 in Fairfax county, then head into PWHD Jurisdiction after February 21,
2022. The new initiative will allow the Local Health Districts to create testing opportunities at
different locations based on community needs.
The hours of operation are Tuesday-Saturday, 9 a.m.- 5:30 p.m.

The testing vendor will offer free Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) testing for COVID-19 to
individuals 3 months and older. PCR test results are usually available within a few days, and
are very effective in detecting an active COVID-19 infection, even if asymptomatic.

The new testing initiative will be in addition to existing Community Testing Events (CTEs) and
other testing activities offered in the community. Testing remains an important tool to help
reduce the spread of COVID-19. It is important to understand when one needs to seek testing. The
following are reasons to get tested for COVID-19.

The Prince William Health District What You Should Know:  Today Is National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day

Today is Nat’l Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day, a day to acknowledge progress in #HIV prevention and care among Black/African American people while recognizing the work still needed. To #StopHIVTogether, we must address #HIVstigma and barriers. https://bit.ly/3r6BxM5 #NBHAAD.

Despite overall progress in reducing HIV transmission in the United States, HIV continues to affect some groups more than others due to longstanding and ingrained barriers. Black or African American (hereafter referred to as Black) people account for a higher proportion of new HIV infections, compared to other races and ethnicities. Black people accounted for 13% of the U.S. population but 40% of people with HIV in 2019, according to CDC estimates.

HIV disparities can and must end. Racism, longstanding systemic inequities, social and economic marginalization, residential segregation, unequal reach of HIV prevention and treatment, and higher levels of HIV in some communities are among the factors that have contributed to these troubling and persistent disparities.

The Prince William Health District What You Should Know:

Immunity after COVID-19 Natural Infection and After Vaccination

Current evidence shows that people who are recently fully vaccinated and people who recently had
COVID-19 are at low risk for getting sick with COVID-19 for at least 6 months.

Right now, scientists do not know what level of antibodies protect a person from COVID-19
infection. There is no test that can determine whether someone is fully protected. Vaccines are one
form of protection, and not a cure.

People with COVID-19 who have more severe symptoms and worse illness tend to produce a much higher
antibody response. This is compared to people without symptoms or with mild illness.

COVID-19 vaccines and previous COVID-19 infection give protection against infection or
reinfection. But, they are not perfect. This means like any vaccine a person can get sick, or have
an allergic reaction to the vaccine. Anyone getting a vaccine or taking any medication is always
advised to seek advice from their medical provider.

Many studies show that antibody levels are associated with protection in the community, but
people may have different levels of antibodies. Studies show that vaccination gives higher initial
antibody levels than infection alone. Vaccination after infection gives a
boost in antibody levels.

The Food and Drug Administration Approves Moderna

Spikevax and Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine. The FDA has fully approved a second COVID-19 vaccine, in
addition to Pfizer/BioNTech Comirnaty. The vaccine has been known as the Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine,
and will now be marketed as Spikevax, for the prevention of COVID-19 in individuals 18 years of
age and older.

Empowered Diagnostics is recalling the CovClear COVID-19 Rapid Antigen Test and the ImmunoPass
COVID-19 Neutralizing Antibody Rapid Test.

These tests were distributed with labeling indicating they are authorized by the FDA, but neither
test has been authorized, cleared, or approved by the FDA for distribution or use in the U.S. The
FDA is concerned about the potentially higher risk of false results when using unauthorized
tests, and has identified this issue as a class I recall, the most serious type of recall.

Community Testing Center (CTC) Walk-ins Now Accepted
Tests are available for persons 3 Months and Older.

Appointments are encouraged at the new CTCs, but walk-ins are welcome. The CTC will offer free
Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) testing for COVID-19. PCR test results are usually available

The Prince William Health District What You Should Know: Effectiveness of a Third Dose of Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna

Vaccines in Preventing COVID-19 Hospitalization Among Immunocompetent and Immunocompromised Adults

What is added by this report?

In a study of hospitalized adults, compared with receipt of 2 mRNA COVID-19 vaccine doses (Pfizer, Moderna), receipt of a third dose increased vaccine effectiveness against hospitalization among adults without and with immunocompromising conditions, from 82% to 97% and from 69% to 88%, respectively.

What are the implications for public health practice?

Administration of a third COVID-19 mRNA vaccine dose as part of a primary series among immunocompromised adults, or as a booster dose among those adults having a normal immune response, provides improved protection against COVID-19–associated hospitalization. Getting vaccinated is a primary protection to help combat the effects of COVID-19.

  • Wash your hands
  • Wear a mask
  • Social distance when you can
  • Avoid large gatherings
  • It is your obligation to protect yourself, and those around you.

The Prince William Health District What You Should Know: 

What is hypothermia?

• Hypothermia is caused by prolonged exposures to very cold temperatures. When exposed to cold temperatures, your body begins to lose heat faster than it’s produced. Lengthy exposures will eventually use up your body’s stored energy, which leads to lower body temperature.

• Body temperature that is too low affects the brain, making the person unable to think clearly or move well. This makes hypothermia especially dangerous, because a person may not know that it’s happening and won’t be able to do anything about it.

• While hypothermia is most likely at very cold temperatures, it can occur even at cool temperatures (above 40°F) if a person becomes chilled from rain, sweat, or submersion in cold water.

Who’s most at risk?

Victims of hypothermia are often:

• Older adults with inadequate food, clothing, or heating

• Babies sleeping in cold bedrooms

• People who remain outdoors for long periods—the homeless, hikers, hunters, etc.

• People who drink alcohol or use illicit drugs.

What are the signs and symptoms of hypothermia?

The following are warnings signs of hypothermia:

Adults:

• Shivering

• Exhaustion or feeling very tired

• Confusion

• Fumbling hands

• Memory loss

• Slurred speech

• Drowsiness

Babies:

• Bright red, cold skin

• Very low energy

• Hypothermia is a medical emergency. If you notice any of the above signs, take the person’s temperature. If it is below 95° F, get medical attention immediately!

• If you are not able to get medical help right away, try to warm the person up.

VDH COVID-19 Vaccine Safety & Efficacy Presentation January 3, 2022

 


January 18, 2022

The Prince William Health District What You Should Know:  What should I do when waiting for my test result?

Quarantine if:
● You have symptoms of COVID-19, regardless of your vaccination status; or
● You live with someone with COVID-19 and you need to quarantine based on vaccination and
booster status; or
● You have had close contact with someone with COVID-19 and you need to quarantine based on
vaccination and booster status; or
● You were told by a healthcare provider or a public health official to stay home

Think about the people you have recently been around so you can prepare to tell them if your test
is positive. You can use VDH’s Notify Your Contacts to remember everyone you have been around. If
your test is positive and the health department calls you, please answer the call.

Seek emergency medical care or call 9-1-1 if you experience any of the following: trouble
breathing, pain or pressure in the chest that won’t go away, new confusion, inability to wake or
stay awake, or pale, gray or blue-colored skin, lips or nail beds, depending on skin tone. Make
sure to inform your healthcare provider of your exposure and vaccine status.

What do you do after you get a positive test result for COVID-19?

Isolation: This means you should stay home and away from others because you have COVID-19. If you
cannot separate from others at home, you should wear a well-fitting mask.
● A positive viral test means you have COVID-19 and need to stay home and away from others
(isolate) for at least 5 days. Day 0 is the first day of symptoms or the day you were tested if
you never had symptoms.
● You can report a positive test through the COVIDWISE Exposure
Notification app. This will send an anonymous notification to people you were in close contact with
who also use the app.

When does isolation end for people who are not healthcare workers:
If your test is positive and you have COVID-19 symptoms, you may end isolation (leave your home)
after 5 days if these things have happened:
● At least 5 full days have passed since symptoms first appeared, and
● You are fever-free for 24 hours without fever-reducing medication, and
● Your other symptoms have improved. (Note that loss of taste and smell might persist for weeks
or months and should not delay the end of isolation.)

If your test is positive and you never had COVID-19 symptoms, you can end isolation (leave your
home) after at least 5 full days have passed since you were tested.

Regardless whether you had symptoms or not, if you stop isolating after Day 5, continue to take
these steps on Days 6-10:
● Wear a well-fitting mask around others at home and in public. If you cannot wear a mask around
others, continue to isolate at home until Day 10.
● Avoid travel, avoid people who have weakened immune systems or who are at high risk for severe
COVID-19, avoid places where you are unable to wear a mask, and avoid other people when you are
eating.

If you are a healthcare worker, consult with your employer for specific guidance.

What do you do after you get a negative test result for COVID-19?
If you have symptoms of COVID-19, continue to stay home and contact a healthcare provider for
additional guidance. If you were exposed to COVID-19, you may need to stay home and should follow
other precautions.

Things to keep in mind about the Community Testing Clinic (CTC):

1. If you can’t make it to your appointment or find another testing location, please cancel your
appointment. This will free up appointments for other residents.
2. If you go to the scheduling site online and can’t find the CTC location, it could mean that
all the appointments have been taken. Keep checking, expand your search to 100 miles and increase                                                                                       the number of days – the time span – you are searching.
3. CTCs are closed on Fridays, and are Blackout days to allow our lab partners to get results
back. On Fridays at noon, appointments open up for Saturday & Sunday appointments.
4. Can’t find an appointment. When there are no more appointments available you can not book
for a later date, or more than 2 days out. Make sure your search uses 100 mile radius. Try back
another day for appointment availability.

COVID-19 cases are surging across the nation, statewide, and regionally to an extent that has not
been seen during the pandemic. This has also had an impact on hospital capacity and operations. The Prince                                                                William Health District (PWHD) is experiencing a significant surge in cases, and just like every other
health district in the country, PWHD is having to assess our capacity and how we can have the most
impact on the safety and wellbeing of our community.

At this time, PWHD is not able to contact every case or contact in the health district, nor would
this be the most effective strategy due to the large amount of community spread. PWHD is
prioritizing cases, outbreaks, and exposures that represent the largest risk of overall community
spread or affects the most vulnerable of our populations to the virus. Individuals who test
positive for COVID-19 are recommended to stay home according to VDH Isolation Guidance. It is
suggested you provide your test results and the linked guidance to your employer if you need
documentation to stay home from work. If you need a letter from the PWHD or other resources or
guidance, please email the address below. If you test positive, you are encouraged to notify your
own contacts using the following guidance.

If you are exposed to a person with COVID-19, please follow quarantine guidance and monitor for
symptoms. If you develop symptoms, immediately isolate and seek testing. Please utilize the
following link to confidentially notify PWHD so that we can provide further guidance and resources:
https://redcap.link/covidcontactreport.

PWHD also encourages all residents to remain vigilant to protect themselves and others in the
community during this time of widespread transmission and increased hospital demand.

Residents are encouraged to mask when around individuals from other households, stay home when sick
and seek testing, and avoid nonessential travel and gatherings. Due to the widespread community
transmission, if you attend gatherings or events where you are not distanced or masked from others,
there is a strong likelihood you will be exposed to COVID-19. People may be infected without
symptoms so they do not realize that they can transmit the virus to others. Residents are also
encouraged to consider this when planning gatherings with families and friends or traveling, and
consider safer habits the week leading up to these gatherings.

Residents are also encouraged to get vaccinated, and boosted if eligible. This is the best way to
protect yourself from the risk of severe illness, hospitalization and death from COVID-19,
especially at a time that hospital capacity is overwhelmed. If not already done, residents should
also get vaccinated against flu, as the flu vaccine is an effective way to prevent severe illness
and hospitalization from the flu.

PWHD wants to thank our residents for the continued efforts to help mitigate the effects of the
pandemic on our community, and encourages everyone to remain vigilant as we get through this winter
surge combined in addition to what appears to be a growing cold and flu season.

If you have any questions, or need any guidance or resources please contact us at PWHDCD@vdh.virginia.gov.

The Prince William Health District What You Should Know:

THE PRINCE WILLIAM HEALTH DISTRICT OPENS COMMUNITY TESTING CENTER FOR COVID-19 TESTING

The Prince William Health District, in partnership with Ashbritt, IEM Health, and Prince William
County opened a Community Testing Center (CTC) at the Pfitzner Stadium Complex, 7 County Complex
Ct. Woodbridge, VA. 22192.

The CTC opened on Thursday January 13, 2022, to provide free Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR)
testing for COVID-19 in order to increase testing availability in response to public demand.
This is a laboratory run test, and the PCR test results are usually available within a few days.
PCR tests are very effective in detecting an active
COVID-19 infection, even if asymptomatic.

The CTC will operate by appointment only and be open from 9:00 to 5:30, Saturday to Thursday. To
find an appointment, visit vase.vdh.virginia.gov/testingappointment. Two days of appointment
slots will be available on days when the testing site is open. CTC test results will be
automatically sent via text or email message to individuals being tested, based on the information
provided by the individual in the appointment system.

• CTC CLOSED SUNDAY JANUARY 16, DUE TO POTENTIAL INCLEMENT WEATHER

Things to keep in mind about the CTC:

1. If you can’t make it to your appointment or find another testing location, please cancel your
appointment. This will free up appointments for other
residents.

2. If you go to the scheduling site online and can’t find the CTC location, it could mean that
all the appointments have been taken. Keep checking, expand your search to 100 miles and increase
the number of days – the time span – you are searching.

3. CTCs are closed on Fridays, and are Blackout days to allow our lab partners to get results
back. On Fridays at noon, appointments open up for Saturday & Sunday appointments.

4. Can’t find an appointment. When there are no more appointments available you can not book
for a later date, or more than 2 days out. Make sure your search uses 100 mile radius. Try back
another day for appointment availability.

The Prince William Health District What You Should Know:

If You Have Come in Contact With Someone With Covid-19 Or Have Cold Like Symptoms, Do Not Come To
Any Clinics To Be Vaccinated. (Symptoms can include any of the following: fever, cough, sore
throat, malaise, headache, muscle pain.)

Steps to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 if you are sick

If you are sick with COVID-19 or think you might have COVID-19, follow the steps below to care for
yourself and to help protect other people in your home and community.

Stay home except to get medical care

• Stay home. Most people with COVID-19 have mild illness and can recover at home without
medical care. Do not leave your home, except to get medical care. Do not visit public areas.
• Take care of yourself. Get rest and stay hydrated. Take over-the-counter medicines, such as
acetaminophen, to help you feel better.
• Stay in touch with your doctor. Call before you get medical care. Be sure to get care if you
have trouble breathing, or have any other emergency warning signs, or if you think it is an
emergency.
• Avoid public transportation, ride-sharing, or taxis.

Virginia Department of Health Temporarily Scales Back Call Center Operations in Office of Vital
Records as Pandemic Causes Staffing Shortages

The Virginia Department of Health (VDH) announced Friday January, 7 that the Office of Vital
Records (OVR) will be temporarily scaling back operations of its Call Center (804-662-6200) public
call-in line, due to staffing shortages and COVID-19 infections affecting its employees.

The Office provides vital event certificates to families who have had a vital event in Virginia,
such as birth, death, marriage or divorce. It serves the entire state and has customers across the
world. The office partners with the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicle (DMV) offices and local
health districts to provide access to certified records at those locations.

Due to staffing shortages and COVID-19 infections among OVR staff members, some operations will be
temporarily suspended so that the office can continue to provide essential services to the general
public. The first step in this process is to take live operators off the Call Center public call-in
line from January 7 through January 14.
During this time, when residents call this line, they will be given information about accessing
services through the OVR website and information about current processing times for certified vital
records requests mailed to the office.

There are multiple service options available to fulfill customer requests. Customers can receive
in-person service at DMV offices, local health districts or the Vital Records central office in
Henrico County. To find the nearest location, please use this tool.  Check with the specific location                                                                                    nearest you, since hours of operation may be limited at some locations. Vital Records central office,                                                                                 located at 2001 Maywill St., Suite 101 in Henrico, operates Monday through Friday,

Prince William Health District Community Vaccination Center (CVC) Will Be Closed Today Friday, January 7, 2022

The Virginia Department of Health (VDH) has closed five of its Community Vaccination Centers (CVCs) Today Friday, January 7, 2022, due to expected inclement weather. Individuals with appointments will be notified of the cancellation and can visit vase.vdh.virginia.gov to reschedule.

VDH made the decision to close the centers located in Charlottesville, Fairfax, Fredericksburg, Prince William and Roanoke out of an abundance of caution for the public and staff. The CVCs in Chesterfield, Newport News, Norfolk and Richmond will be open with regular hours.

VDH will decide Today whether to open the closed CVC sites on Saturday.  Please check VDH’s website and social media accounts for this information.

Individuals are advised to reschedule missed vaccine appointments as soon as possible. Second doses of Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna vaccines can be safely extended up to 42 days after the first dose is given. Those who had scheduled a return date of 21 or 28 days after their first dose still have some time to receive a timely vaccine. Those who miss the opportunity to get a second dose within 42 days should still proceed with a second dose and will be considered fully vaccinated, though per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention there is limited information on the effectiveness of receiving a second dose beyond 42 days.

CDC Recommendations for 12–17 Year Olds, All Pfizer Boosters After Five Months and Third Doses for Immunocompromised 5–11 Year Olds

The Virginia Department of Health (VDH) is immediately adopting the following recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC):

  • that individuals ages 12–17 years should get a Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine booster dose five months after finishing their two-dose primary series;
  • that all individuals ages 18 years and older should get any COVID-19 Vaccine booster dose five months, rather than six months, after finishing their two-dose primary series of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine; and
  • that 5–11-year-old vaccine recipients who are moderately or severely immunocompromised be eligible to receive a third dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine 28 days after the second dose.

The Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine is the only vaccine that has been authorized for use in children and adolescents, ages 5 years and older, and the only vaccine with a booster interval of five months after completion of the initial two-dose series. Moderna and Johnson & Johnson/Janssen are authorized only for persons 18 years of age and older.

Community Testing Center Coming Soon

The Virginia Department of Health will open nine new Community Testing Centers (CTCs) to increase testing availability across the Commonwealth. Centers will be funded with an initial $5 million from the Virginia Department of Health, which is seeking FEMA funding to reimburse expenses and continue testing deployment. New testing centers will offer Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) tests—the most reliable form of testing for COVID-19—and will supplement numerous locally-coordinated Community Testing Events.

Prince William Health District will be one of the locations for the new CTCs. Please follow us on our website, Twitter, Facebook, and Next Door platforms. To learn about location, times, and how to make an appointment.

Testing

 

You can reach out to your healthcare provider for COVID-19 testing. Pharmacies offer COVID-19 testing and sell over-the-counter home testing kits. https://www.vdh.virginia.gov/coronavirus/covid-19-testing/walgreens-partnership/

Important Ways to Slow the Spread of COVID-19

  • Get a COVID-19 vaccine as soon as you canFind a vaccine.
  • Wear a mask that covers your nose and mouth to help protect yourself and others.
  • Stay 6 feet apart from others who don’t live with you.
  • Avoid crowds and poorly ventilated indoor spaces.
  • Test to prevent spread to others.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water. Use hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available.
  • You might choose to wear a mask regardless of the level of transmission if a member of your household has a weakened immune system, is at increased risk for severe disease, or is unvaccinated.
  • If you are gathering with a group of people from multiple households and potentially from different parts of the country, you could consider additional precautions (e.g., avoiding crowded indoor spaces before travel, taking a test) in advance of gathering to further reduce risk.
  • Do NOT put a mask on children younger than 2 years old.

With travel near pre-pandemic levels, the continued spread of the Delta variant, and the rise of the Omicron variant, many people have questions about the best ways to stay safe and healthy during their holiday travels. The Public Health Communications Collaborative has created a new resource outlining travel tips and requirements for U.S. travelers, including the latest CDC updates on testing requirements for international travel.

  • If you are planning to travel this holiday season, here are a few important ways to help prevent the spread of COVID-19—like getting vaccinated, wearing a mask, and tracking local COVID-19 rates in your origin and destination locations.
  • No matter how you’re spending the holidays, the best way to protect yourself from COVID-19 is to get vaccinated, and get a booster if eligible.
  • Are you planning a trip? Regardless of vaccination status, everyone is required to wear a mask on planes, and show a negative COVID-19 test taken no more than 1 day before returning to the U.S. from abroad.

December 17, 2021 Information Update

CDC Endorses ACIP’s Updated COVID-19 Vaccine Recommendations

  • Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is endorsing updated recommendations made by the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) for the prevention of COVID-19, expressing a clinical preference for individuals to receive an mRNA COVID-19 vaccine over Johnson & Johnson’s COVID-19 vaccine.
    • ACIP’s unanimous recommendation followed a robust discussion of the latest evidence on vaccine effectiveness, vaccine safety and rare adverse events, and consideration of the U.S. vaccine supply.
    • The U.S. supply of mRNA vaccines is abundant – with nearly 100 million doses in the field for immediate use. This updated CDC recommendation follows similar recommendations from other countries, including Canada and the United Kingdom.
    • Given the current state of the pandemic both here and around the world, the ACIP reaffirmed that receiving any vaccine is better than being unvaccinated. Individuals who are unable or unwilling to receive an mRNA vaccine can continue to have access to Johnson & Johnson’s COVID-19 vaccine.
  • Getting vaccinated and getting a booster dose when you are eligible is still the best way to protect yourself from COVID-19 and prevent severe disease, hospitalization, and death.
    • If people have questions about which vaccine is best for them, they should talk to their healthcare provider.

Northern Virginia Health Districts Stress Importance of Taking Steps to Stay Safe from COVID-19 during this Winter Surge

Since the start of this pandemic almost two years ago, there have been more than 2,600 COVID-19 deaths, 9,000 hospitalizations, and 230,000 cases in northern Virginia. Many of the hospitalizations and deaths occurred during last winter’s surge.

Fortunately, this winter we have wide access to vaccinations, which have been shown to lead to a dramatic reduction in hospitalizations and death. Additionally, indoor mask use in work and school settings has been shown to significantly decrease the risk of transmission; this is seen most strikingly in the higher number and size of COVID-19 outbreaks in school settings where masks are less used, such as in athletics or in schools that have higher rates of mask exemptions.

With more people spending time indoors with others as cold weather sets in, public health leaders encourage everyone to maintain their layered prevention activities which may include:

  • Get all members of your family age 5 years and older fully vaccinated, including booster shots if eligible.
  • Wear a mask indoors when around those not in your household.
  • Stay home when sick.
  • Socially distance – stay six feet from others as much as possible.
  • Avoid crowded and indoor areas where distancing is not possible, or where you will be in close contact with those whose vaccination status is unknown.
  • If you think you may have COVID-19 or may have been exposed, get tested and follow guidelines for isolation and quarantine.
  • Wash your hands with soap and water, or use hand sanitizer if soap and water is not available. This will help prevent many diseases, including the seasonal flu.
  • If you are not fully vaccinated, stay away from others and get tested 3-5 days after returning home from travel.

While we can’t predict how COVID-19 may act in the future as new variants emerge, we do know that maximizing these mitigation steps is the best way to protect our community, keep children in schools, and safely make it through this winter surge.

VDH Ready to Implement Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Recommendation of Pfizer-BioNTech Booster for Persons 16-17 Years of Age

Following the recommendation from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that persons ages 16 through 17 years of age be eligible for a Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccination booster, the Virginia Department of Health (VDH) has given the go-ahead for administration of those booster doses in the Commonwealth.

The Food and Drug Administration gave full approval to the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine on Aug. 23, 2021.  Marketed under the name of Comirnaty, it is approved for persons 16 years of age and older. On Nov. 19, 2021, the CDC recommended that all persons 18 years of age and older who received either the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna mRNA vaccine get a booster dose at least six months after they complete their two-dose primary series. The CDC also recommends anyone 18 years and older who received the Johnson & Johnson/Janssen COVID-19 vaccine receive a booster dose two months after they complete their single-dose primary series.

Boosters are available at a number of venues throughout the Commonwealth, including pharmacies, physicians’ offices, Community Vaccination Centers (CVCs), mobile clinics, and other sites as set up by local health districts throughout the state.

Virginia Deparment of Health Urges Virginians to Get the Flu Vaccine

 Although flu activity remains low nationally, Virginia has started to see sporadic reports of the influenza virus detected in recent weeks. December is not too late to get your flu vaccine! While the flu season may vary from year to year, cases often peak in January or February and continue through May.

A flu vaccine is needed every season for two reasons:

  • First, the body’s immune response from vaccination declines over time, so an annual vaccine is needed for optimal protection.
  • Second, because flu viruses are constantly changing, the formulation of the flu vaccine is reviewed each year and updated to keep up with changing flu viruses.

To minimize your risk of contracting or transmitting the flu, follow these simple steps:

  • Get vaccinated;
  • Wash your hands frequently and thoroughly, for at least 20 seconds;
  • Cover your cough, either by using a disposable tissue or coughing into your sleeve, not your hand; and
  • Stay at home when you are sick.

Visit www.vaccines.gov/find-vaccines/ to find a location near you to get the flu vaccine. It is safe to get both the flu and COVID-19 vaccine at the same time.

December 3, 2021 Information Update

FIRST CONFIRMED CASES OF OMICRON VARIANT DETECTED IN THE UNITED STATES

As of December 1, 2021, Omicron (pronounced O’mi-Kron) has been identified in the United States.  Omicron (B.1.1.529) is reported now in more than 20 countries (including the United States and Australia, Austria, Belgium, Botswana, Brazil, Canada, Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Germany).

How does Omicron compare to Delta?   CDC is following the details of this new variant closely. Omicron is not derived directly from Alpha, Delta or other Variants of Concern.

We know what it takes to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

  • Getting vaccinated prevents severe illness, hospitalization, and death; it also helps reduce the spread of the virus in communities.
  • The best way to stop variants from developing in the first place is to stop the spread of the virus. Unvaccinated individuals should get vaccinated and continue masking until they are fully vaccinated.
  • Even if we find that vaccine effectiveness is somewhat reduced in the face of Omicron, vaccination, including first doses, second doses, third doses and booster doses for fully vaccinated people aged 18 years or older, is still our most important tool to protect people. Vaccination will likely continue to provide some level of protection against serious outcomes.
  • Scientists are actively exploring vaccine efficacy against Omicron and we should learn a lot more in the coming weeks.
  • Vaccination is the most important public health action to end the COVID-19 pandemic.

November 29, 2021 Information Update 

First Death in Virginia from Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome in Children (MIS-C)
Associated with COVID-19 Reported

 On Friday November 26, The Virginia Department of Health confirmed a death from Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome in Children (MIS-C) associated with COVID-19. This is the first death from MIS-C reported in Virginia. The child was between 10 and 19 years old and resided in the Prince William Health District. To protect privacy, and out of respect for the family, no other patient information was disclosed.

MIS-C, previously called Pediatric Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome, is a health condition associated with COVID-19. The first reports of this syndrome came from the United Kingdom in late April 2020. U.S. cases were first reported in New York City in early May of 2020. Virginia has reported 111 cases to date.

MIS-C may cause problems with a child’s heart, lungs, kidneys and other organs. Most children with MIS-C have ongoing fever, plus more than one of the following: stomach pain, diarrhea, vomiting, skin rash, bloodshot eyes, and dizziness or lightheadedness.

Parents should go to the nearest hospital/emergency room for medical care if a child is showing any severe MIS-C warning signs such as trouble breathing, pain or pressure in the chest that does not go away; confusion or unusual behavior; severe abdominal pain; inability to wake or stay awake; or pale, gray or blue-colored skin, lips or nail beds, depending on skin tone.

The CDC issued a Health Advisory on May 14, 2020 about the syndrome. It is not currently known how common it may be for children to experience these symptoms. For more information on MIS-C visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website at www.cdc.gov/mis/.
