Fun Fact

69% of follows on Twitter are suggested by friends.

It is also equally important that people continue to get vaccinated. Both Moderna and Pfizer vaccines are available. If you have not yet been vaccinated, I encourage you to do so with one of the available #COVID19 vaccines as soon as you can.

Quoted @WHCOVIDResponse

🧵 Today, we are announcing a $1.7 billion investment for the CDC and state and local public health departments to monitor, track, and defeat emerging threats -- whether it’s COVID-19 variants today or other viruses in the future -- through a process known as genomic sequencing.

In the fight against #COVID19 we need to continue to track and get ahead of COVID-19 variants. The Biden admin’s 1.7 billion investment fortifies CDC’s ability to help stop this virus & its variants AND situates experts & partners to better respond to future public health needs. https://t.co/Gt2PziMIrk

.@DollyParton I’m thrilled that you’ll soon be considered fully-vaccinated against #COVID19! Seeing you and so many others getting vaccinated gives me hope that together, we’re going to get through this pandemic. https://t.co/YqI9FHD0Bd

100+ countries have a Field Epidemiology Training Program (#FETP) to build the workforce for detecting and responding to health threats. We must strengthen this enterprise to achieve #GlobalHealthSecurity. A new group is focused on this: https://t.co/RGCA2jU4Wx #FETPEnterprise https://t.co/v7hyOsKGMS

CDC has helped train more than 19,000 disease detectives, and this #FETPEnterprise Strategic Leadership Group is the critical next step in helping build capacity to respond to disease threats around the world. https://t.co/RKxfb9cJgx

Quoted @DrMartinCDC

The ongoing #COVID19 pandemic, and other infectious disease outbreaks, make it clear that all countries must have the capacity to prevent, detect, and respond to public health threats.

I completely agree. #COVID19 has taught us just how critical CDC’s mission is both locally and on a global scale. https://t.co/ohp9iBwO2z

Of nearly 7 million doses of J&J/Janssen #COVID19 Vaccine given in the US, a small number of cases of a rare & severe type of blood clot have been reported in people after receiving the vaccine. CDC & @US_FDA recommend a pause as we review data. More: https://t.co/SVTRkBgIET https://t.co/QF5po3vTQ4

We still encourage you to get a vaccine when one is available to you. Pfizer & Moderna vaccines still being administered. People w. vaccine appointments should keep them, & we'll work w/ partners to reschedule those that were intending to get J&J vaccine. https://t.co/wU0sqJzbII

CDC Principal Deputy Director Dr. Anne Schuchat discusses future of Johnson & Johnson vaccine after pause due to blood clot concerns: "We want to get to the bottom of it and make sure we can protect people. The pandemic is serious.” https://t.co/TCWRhhroSM https://t.co/5FB9e7WJcV

I know pausing administration of the Johnson & Johnson #COVID19 vaccine has led to questions, esp. for those who recently received a J&J vaccine. We made this decision out of an abundance of caution & b/c of our commitment to protecting people, to vaccine safety, AND to science. https://t.co/a8LlhAV3Ki

Two new @CDCMMWR reports underscore the need to address health inequities in our country & our #COVID19 vaccination efforts. We must commit to equitable distribution of vaccines, particularly to those communities that have increased risk for COVID-19. https://t.co/6NjSpPgYMe

I spoke to @CDCDirector about why she is focusing on racism in health, and why it's so important to prioritize it now https://t.co/KMB4afoXr0

Racism is a serious public health threat. The new CDC initiative is not just about the color of your skin but also about where you live, work, pray, & where your children play. All of these things feed into people’s health and their opportunities for health. https://t.co/hXWnqtqsei

The #COVID19 pandemic has illuminated longstanding racial and ethnic health inequities that have persisted in this country for centuries. Learn more about how CDC is working to understand and measure the health impacts of racism. https://t.co/Gtpe22asT3

Confronting the impact of racism on the health of our nation will not be easy, but we can meet this challenge. We can create an America where all people have the opportunity to live a healthy life when we each take responsibility and work together. I am committed to this work. https://t.co/wOjU8Zw4EQ

We all know someone who has been affected by substance use. The overdose crisis knows no boundaries - it cuts across socioeconomics, demographics, political & religious affiliation, & geography. We must find the strength to do more so others do not have to follow this path. https://t.co/TIxccNUKei

Today @POTUS reaffirmed a very clear message – our teachers & school staff are essential and their safety is important to this administration. According to the @CDCgov – 80% of teachers & school staff have already received at least one dose of a vaccine. Let's get to 100%! https://t.co/ZaPIc3AnJj

Nearly 8 million people who educate our children and work in our schools now have some protection from #COVID19. Our push to ensure that teachers, school staff, and childcare workers are vaccinated against #COVID19 has paid off and paved the way for safer in-person learning. https://t.co/cx9pUWl6kQ

On March 11, President Biden announced that he was opening up all vaccination sites to all adults by May 1. Today, he announced he’s moving up the date to April 19. That means in less than two weeks, every adult will be eligible to get vaccinated.

We've released a special episode for National Public Health Week! Join us as we talk with @CDCDirector Dr. Walensky about @CDCgov's latest work to combat #COVID19 and how health professionals can help prepare communities for a new normal. Listen on your fave app or below. #NPHW

My experience as an infectious disease physician during #COVID19 - fully donned in PPE, masks, goggles, gowns, gloves, & being the only comfort that a patient might have - connected me to individual people & to state level policies. I brought that experience with me to lead CDC. https://t.co/QvJVsFKXzj
