ACEP Warns Parents Not To Water Down Infant Formula Amid ShortageHealthDay reports, “As the United States faces critical shortages of baby formula, parents are being cautioned against watering down formula in an effort to stretch out what they have.” Unless otherwise “advised by a physician, infants younger than 6 months should not be given water or any liquids other than infant formula or breast milk...says” the American College of Emergency Physicians in a news release. ACEP President Gillian Schmitz, MD, FACEP, said, “Adding extra water to baby formula to try and make it last longer can put a child at risk of a seizure or another medical emergency. ... Given the current formula shortage, it may be tempting to look for a workaround, but it is very important to always mix formula according to the manufacturer’s instructions.” Emergency physicians highlight several “do’s and don’ts for parents of infants” regarding formula use amid the ongoing shortage. consumer.healthday.com/infant-formula-2657341381.html ...

US Health Officials Weigh New COVID-19 Vaccination Strategy For The FallThe New York Times reports “scientists and federal health officials are converging on a new strategy for immunizing Americans: a vaccination campaign this fall, perhaps with doses that are finely tuned to combat the version of the virus expected to be in circulation.” On June 28, “scientific advisers to the Food and Drug Administration will meet to identify the coronavirus variant most likely to be percolating in the United States.” The idea behind the plan “is that eligible Americans would be urged to seek immunization against the coronavirus and the flu at the same time this fall, and in the same places: drugstores, doctors’ offices, walk-in clinics, and the like.”www.nytimes.com/2022/05/18/health/covid-vaccine-flu-omicron.html ...
