Are You Ready for RSV?
Each year in the United States, RSV leads to approximately 2.1 million outpatient visits among children younger than 5 and up to 80,000 hospitalizations. Coming off of a particularly brutal RSV season last year, many of us in pediatrics are feeling wary heading into this winter; however, hope is on the horizon as a new RSV vaccine hit the market this fall. Join our conversation with pediatric pulmonologist Dr. Brian Carroll to help you get your practice and your patients ready for RSV season. Go to the episode transcript here.
