Health Care Affordability Board Approves Statewide Health Care Spending Target for 2025-2029

FDA Advisers Unanimously Recommend Next Round Of COVID-19 Vaccines Target JN.1 Variant

The New York Times (6/5, Weiland, Jewett) reports, “A committee of advisers to the Food and Drug Administration voted on Wednesday to update the formula for the Covid vaccine ahead of an anticipated fall immunization campaign, now an annual step to try to offer better protection against versions of the virus in circulation.” The panel’s unanimous vote “recommends a formula aimed at combating the variant JN.1, which dominated infections in the United States in February, or a version of it.”

Reuters reports COVID-19 vaccine makers Pfizer, Moderna, and Novavax “earlier in the day said data from animal studies showed their 2024-25 shots targeting the JN.1 variant that was dominant earlier this year could neutralize newer subvariants such as KP.2 much better than the older shots.” In terms of timing, “Pfizer and partner BioNTech said they will be ready to supply their updated vaccines immediately upon approval, while Moderna forecasts a timeline for August.” Also reporting are CNN (6/5, Christensen), Bloomberg Law (6/5, Chang), and The Hill (6/5, Choi).

Keep Your Pets Safe Over the 4th

Pets and 4th of July

Fourth of July festivities, including fireworks, picnics, and other traditions, can be thrilling for people but pose risks to animals.

Loud noises and commotions can distress pets, leading them to flee. Holiday foods may be harmful, and the summer heat and travel can be perilous. Debris from celebrations can also endanger pets.

Regardless of your own plans, safeguarding your pets during and after Fourth of July events is crucial. The American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) recommends:


  1. Ensure your pets have updated identification tags and consider microchipping if not already done.
  2. Take current photos of your pets and consider behavioral therapy for anxious animals.
  3. Secure your environment to prevent escapes and evaluate the safety of your surroundings.

Safety during celebrations:

  1. Leave pets at home during parties, fireworks displays, and gatherings to avoid frightening situations.
  2. Consider confining pets to a secure room or crate during festivities. Keep horses and livestock away from noise andexcitement in fenced areas.
  3. Ask guests to watch for potential escapes and keep pets away from fireworks and harmful items.
  4. Avoid feeding pets table scraps and protect them from sun and heat. Never leave pets in hot cars and take precautions when traveling.


  1. Inspect yards and pastures for fireworks debris to prevent ingestion or injury.
  2. Remove food scraps and debris that could harm pets after hosting gatherings.

By taking these precautions, you can ensure a safe and enjoyable Fourth of July for both you and your pets.
