Healthy people should get annual COVID-19 boosters to prevent widespread outbreaks, suggests a new study from Yale University and the University of North Carolina at Charlotte.

A team of scientists led by faculty at the Yale School of Public Health and the University of North Carolina at Charlotte finds that updated boosters administered on an annual or biannual basis greatly reduce the long-term risk of infection from endemic COVID-19.

There’s a new tool available to help researchers choose the most appropriate scientific journal for the potential publication of their manuscript. Say hello to Jot: a free, open-source web application that matches manuscripts in the fields of biomedicine and life sciences with suitable journals, based on a manuscript's title, abstract, and (optionally) citations.

Previous studies have shown the connection between age, exposure to carcinogens and the risk of developing cancer due to the accumulation of mutations over time. Scientists from Yale University and Emmanuel College demonstrate a new scientific approach to determine the origins of different types of cancer. Jeffrey Townsend, YSPH Elihu Professor of Biostatistics and Ecology & Evolutionary Biology, was a co-author of the study.

Since COVID-19 vaccines first became available to protect against infection and severe illness, there has been much uncertainty about how long the protection lasts, and when it might be necessary for individuals to get an additional booster shot. Now, a team of scientists led by faculty at the Yale School of Public Health and the University of North Carolina at Charlotte has an answer: strong protection following vaccination is short-lived.

In a new study, Yale epidemiologists hit upon a more practical strategy for COVID surveillance on the part of companies, teams, schools, and communities. With frequent, regular rapid antigen (RA) testing, plus isolating people who test positive, organizations can cut the risk of out-of-control COVID outbreaks effectively and make long quarantines a thing of the past, the researchers say.
