Events promoting vaccination called off in Nevada after harassing comments were posted on social media A non-profit that promotes vaccinations in Nevada canceled two events after anti-vaxxers posted harassing comments against the host venues on social media. Immunize Nevada scheduled two fundraising breakfasts in December to honor health care employees who help with vaccinations. Online harassment and concerns of protesters coming to the events drove the organization to cancel the Reno and Las Vegas events.”We looked at the whole picture and because we knew that these events were to be celebrations in honor of immunization champions in Nevada, we didn’t want there to be any risk,” Executive Director Heidi Parker of Immunize Nevada told CNN on Monday.There has been an “increase in harassment and anti-vax extremist behavior,” Parker said. She cited anti-vaccination supporters speaking up at a meeting of Nevada’s legislative health care committee, which she spoke at on December 11. And on the other side of the world, an alleged anti-vaxxer in Samoa was cited for “incitement against the government vaccination order” after a measles outbreak.

FDA plagued by lack of training and oversight during opioid crisis, report says A newly released report says the Food and Drug Administration may have failed to set strict enough standards and follow-through for training doctors about the risks associated with opioids. Researchers say lack of oversight and training problems happened while the opioid crisis killed tens of thousands of people a year. The rules were part of what’s called a Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategy, or REMS, which required manufacturers of long-acting and addictive opioids like OxyContin to pay for training for doctors prescribing the drugs, and to monitor and report back on how well that training was working. But in the study published in JAMA Internal Medicine,
researchers at Johns Hopkins University found that didn’t happen. The report said long-acting or “extended-release” opioids such as oxycodone and morphine “were associated with greater risk of addiction, unintentional overdose and death than their immediate-release counterparts.” So in 2012, the FDA set up rules requiring painkiller manufacturers to deliver “continuing education” to doctors and “develop medication guides to inform patients about risks” as well as monitor and report on “patient access to drugs and safety.”
