Covid-19: Vaccines, Boosters, and Outpatient Therapies


UCSF Department of Medicine

In this Covid Grand Rounds, we bring back Paul Offit, director of the Vaccine Education Center at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and member of the FDA’s vaccine advisory committee, to give us an update on vaccines.

Paul will cover vaccines and boosters in kids, second boosters in adults, hybrid and infection-related immunity, and how well our vaccines are holding up against the new Omicron variants.

In the second half of the session, UCSF’s Annie Luetkemeyer and Sarah Doernberg focus on treatments for Covid in outpatients, with an emphasis on the role and use of Paxlovid and options for immunosuppressed patients.
