Priority vaccination for mental illness, developmental or intellectual disability

Coronavirus vaccines have made their debut. States and healthcare facilities first prioritised healthcare staff and elderly residents of congregant facilities, putting those individuals at a higher risk of serious complications first; other groups with increased risk of serious complications are now eligible under locally administered services. According to recent studies, priority vaccinations should be given to people with severe mental disorders and/or developmental or intellectual disabilitiesu2014a population that is particularly vulnerable to the harms of COVID-19, which is also critical to consider when deciding on priority vaccinations.

The second-tier status of fragile X syndrome testing for unexplained intellectual disability/global developmental delay in the era of next-generation sequencing

Many individuals with unexplained etiology and global developmental delay have benefited from the excellent detection results of copy number variations and next-generation sequencing testing, but many people are also suffering from ID/GDD of unexplained etiology. We looked at the possibility of fragile X syndrome testing in unexplained ID/GDD patients with negative or absent genetic testing in this research. Methods We used the three-total repeat polymerase chain reaction to investigate the validity and use of fragile X testing in unexplained ID/GDD patients with negative or absent genetic testing from three hospitals. Positive results were found for 681 ID/GDD individuals with negative or absent genetic testing findings identified by FXS testing, with 12 men and one woman positive. The detection rate of FXS testing in ID/GDD individuals who underwent genetic testing was significantly higher than in those who underwent genetic testing.
