Hep a vaccine Havrix 1440 for adults is out of stock. They prescribed me 2 Havrix 720 (jr). Epidemiologists say taking 2 junior has no protection?

Hepatitis A vaccine: Havrix comes in adult and pediatric doses. The adult vaccine contains 1440 EL.U. (ELISA Units) of viral antigen, while the pediatric dose contains 720 EL.U. So two doses of the pediatric vaccine given at the same time, should be equivalent to one needle injection with the adult vaccine. These are highly effective vaccines, so I don't know what information you've been told-but I think it's fine. ...Read more

Geriatrics md: how can nursing home refuse to share care plan with woman's child citing hipaa even before she moves in? Older nonmedical sib has poa.

HIPAA strictly: Demands that medical personnel do not discuss medical care issues with anyone but the person designated by the patient. It appears it is not you. Don't get mad at the nursing home, your beloved government came up with the rule. If they are ever found in contempt, the home is fined and potentially taken out of business. So there's that! ...Read more

These health centers have financial counselors and other staff to determine your exact eligibility for medical and help you get registered and set up with a primary care doc. Good luck! ...Read more
