Vaccines for infectious diseases

Currently, COVID and RSV vaccines are not available in our offices. However, we facilitate inpatient vaccination seamlessly through community facilities, including hospitals, rehab centers, nursing homes and more. Below is the list of vaccines we currently carry.

  • Hepatits B Adult (Heplisav-B)
  • Typhoid – oral
  • Bexsero: Protects against meningococcal group B bacteria, a common cause of meningitis and septicemia.
  • Hep A & B (Twinrix)
  • Hep A Adults (Havrix)
  • Hep B Adults (Energix-B)
  • Hep A Peds (Havrix)
  • Hep B Peds (Engerix-B)
  • Menveo: Prevents invasive meningococcal disease caused by four serogroups of Neisseria meningitidis bacteria.
  • Shingrix: Helps prevent shingles.
  • Tdap (Boostrix): A combination vaccine that protects against tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis (whooping cough); recommended for adolescents and adults as a booster to maintain immunity.
  • Gardasil: Provides protection against certain strains of human papillomavirus (HPV), which can cause cervical cancer, genital warts and other cancers.
  • MMR
  • Pneumovax
  • Varicella (Varivax): Protects against chickenpox, a highly contagious viral infection caused by the varicella-zoster virus, particularly recommended for children and adults who have not had the disease or been vaccinated.
  • Prevnar 20: Provides protection against pneumococcal disease caused by 20 strains of Streptococcus pneumoniae bacteria, helping to prevent pneumonia and other infections.
  • Trumenba: Protect against meningococcal group B bacteria, aiding in the prevention of meningococcal disease, particularly in adolescents and young adults.
  • Haemophilus type b (Hib): Protects against Haemophilus influenzae type b bacteria, which can cause severe infections such as meningitis and pneumonia, primarily recommended for infants and young children.
  • Polio
  • Td (Tenivac): Prevents tetanus and diphtheria in persons 7 years of age and older.
  • Typhoid – injectable
  • Yellow fever
  • JE (Ixiaro): Prevents Japanese encephalitis, a viral infection transmitted by mosquitoes, typically recommended for travelers to areas where the disease is endemic.
  • Flublok Quadrivalent: An influenza vaccine for adults.
  • Fluzone HD Quadrivalent: An influenza vaccine for people over age 65.

Infectious disease prevention programs

Infection prevention programs (IPPs) are like protective plans used by healthcare workers to stop infections from spreading in hospitals and other medical places. They’re important because they keep patients, doctors and visitors safe from infections present in healthcare settings.

These programs help protect people in various ways by:

  • Making rules and plans to control infections.
  • Monitoring how many infections happen and investigate if there’s an outbreak.
  • Teaching healthcare workers how to stop infections.
  • Providing advice to hospital leaders on how to make facilities safer from infectious disease.
  • Working with different healthcare workers to make sure patients stay safe.

It’s important to know that IPPs are different from infectious disease consulting. IPPs focus on preventing infections, while infectious disease consulting is about diagnosing and treating specific infections.

Antimicrobial stewardship programs

Antimicrobial stewardship programs (ASPs) are carefully designed plans to ensure antibiotics are used wisely. ASPs are used in hospitals, clinics and other healthcare settings. A team of experts creates rules and guidelines to help healthcare workers use antibiotics properly.

These programs administered by ID Care have the same overall objectives as the infectious disease prevention program mentioned above. They develop rules for antibiotic use, instruct healthcare workers on their proper use and monitor use of antibiotics in the healthcare environment.

These programs are important because they help patients get better, prevent antibiotics from becoming less effective and save money in healthcare.

HIV clinic: Princeton University Hospital

HIV, or human immunodeficiency virus, is a sexually transmitted infection (STI) that weakens the immune system, making it harder for the body to fight off diseases. At ID Care, we’ve been delivering effective HIV treatment to New Jersey residents since 1996.

Expert witness testimonies

Selecting a medical expert is critical when medical facts are disputed in legal cases, as the expert’s qualifications can determine the accuracy and acceptance of facts presented. ID Care physicians, who are board certified in infectious diseases, offer years of clinical experience, strong credentials and credibility as expert witnesses.

Specializing in various areas such as Lyme disease, C. diff infections and healthcare-related adverse outcomes, our experts provide valuable support through analysis, affidavits and testimony. We provide expert witnesses for diverse clients, from corporations to individuals, government agencies and small businesses.

Outpatient & ER inpatient follow-ups

An outpatient infectious disease follow-up is a medical visit that happens after someone leaves the hospital with an infectious illness. During this visit, an ID Care doctor checks how the patient is doing, looks for any problems, and gives more information and support.

Depending on the illness and the patient, the visit may include reviewing medical history, doing a physical exam and ordering tests. The doctor also educates the patient on preventing the illness from spreading and may suggest further treatment or monitoring. If the person has recovered fully, the doctor may recommend the patient be vaccinated for future protection.
