E-Cigarettes and Vaping

 

OUTBREAK OF LUNG ILLNESS ASSOCIATED WITH USING E-CIGARETTE PRODUCTS

Posted September 6, 2019 at 9:50pm ET CDC ( Centers for Disease Control and Prevention)

CDC, U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), state and local health departments, and other clinical and public health partners are investigating a multistate outbreak of severe pulmonary disease associated with e-cigarette product (devices, liquids, refill pods, and/or cartridges) use. This investigation is ongoing and has not identified a cause, but all reported cases have a history of using e-cigarette products.

ABOUT ELECTRONIC CIGARETTES (E-Cigarettes)

  • E-cigarettes are devices that deliver an aerosol to the user by heating a liquid that usually contains nicotine, flavorings, and other chemicals. E-cigarettes can also be used to deliver marijuana or other substances.

  • E-cigarettes have the potential to benefit adult smokers who are not pregnant if used as a complete substitute for regular cigarettes and other smoked tobacco products.

  • E-cigarettes are not safe for youth, young adults, pregnant women, or adults who do not currently use tobacco products.

  • While e-cigarettes have the potential to benefit some people and harm others, scientists still have a lot to learn about whether e-cigarettes are effective for quitting smoking.

  • If you’ve never smoked or used other tobacco products or e-cigarettes, don’t start.

  • Additional research can help understand long-term health effects.

Seasonal Influenza (Flu) 

Influenza (or flu) is a seasonal respiratory (lung) infection that causes fever and a cough or sore throat. It is most common during the fall and winter months. Every year, more than 2,000 New Yorkers die of seasonal influenza and pneumonia, which can develop as a complication of flu. Vaccination is the best way to protect against the flu.

Seasonal Flu Vaccine

Flu vaccines for the 2019-20 flu season will be available in early-mid fall for CCNY Students on a first come-first serve basis. Please check back on this page then to see when the flu vaccine will be available on campus.
