Health Alerts, Drug Approvals, Recalls, Adverse Events

IDSA offers two members-only e-mail services to inform subscribers about important infectious diseases information of immediate concern. The CDC HAN forwarding service relays Health Alert Network (HAN) messages from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and is intended for members who do not receive these messages from other sources.  The FDA Alert forwarding service e-mails ID-related messages from the Food and Drug Administration on label changes, adverse events, newly approved drugs, and other information on FDA-approved drugs and biologics.  Recent alerts included:

CDC HAN Alert:

  • Influenza-Associated Pediatric Mortality and Staphylococcus aureus co-infection

FDA Alerts:
