The CDC has reported 530 cases of lung injury from 38 states and 1 U.S. territory as of last week.

Federal health officials received complete sex and age data on 373 of 530 cases. What we know is nearly three fourths (72%) of cases are male, two thirds (67%) of cases are 18 to 34 years old and 16% of cases are under 18 years and 17% are 35 years or older.

All reported cases have a history of e-cigarette product use or vaping and most patients have reported a history of using e-cigarette products containing THC. Many patients have reported using THC and nicotine. Some have reported the use of e-cigarette products containing only nicotine.

The Florida Department of Health is responding to this emerging public health issue with the following activities:

  • Coordinating with the CDC and FDA to develop a disease case definition and to report cases of illness to the CDC to be part of the national investigation;
  • Working with county health departments and clinicians to identify and investigate reports of lung disease associated with electronic cigarette or vaping use; and,
  • Monitoring and conducting surveillance of lung disease that is associated with electronic cigarette or vaping use.

Until we know more, CDC recommends that you consider refraining from using e-cigarette or vaping products.
