The Coronavirus or COVID-19 is the infectious disease caused by the most recently discovered coronavirus. This new virus and disease was unknown before the outbreak began in Wuhan, China, in December 2019. The most common symptoms of COVID-19 are fever, tiredness, body aches, and dry cough. Some patients may have aches and pains, nasal congestion, runny nose, sore throat or diarrhea. These symptoms are usually mild and begin gradually. Some people become infected but don’t develop any symptoms and don't feel unwell. Most people (about 80%) recover from the disease without needing special treatment.
The best way to prevent illness is to get vaccinated. The Covid vaccine is safe and effective. The Delta variant is now considered to be the most transmissible variant, possibly 50% more contagious than the original Alpha variant which killed over 600,000 Americans. This variant is spreading rapidly among unvaccinated populations.
If you have questions or concerns about the vaccine, please speak to your doctor.
Have you heard about the new vaccine for the shingles virus? It's called Shingrix.
The CDC is recommending anyone 50 and above receive this vaccine even if they've already received Zostavax.
Shingrix is said to be 91% effective against the shingles virus and in some patients it has shown to be 97% effective.
This vaccine is given in 2 shots; you receive the first one and then the second one 2-6 months from the first one.
Medicare will not allow us to give this vaccine in our offices but we can give you a prescription to bring to the pharmacy. Commercial insurances are paying for it in the offices.
Talk to your doctor about Shingrix & protect yourself against shingles today!
We now have the Moderna vaccine/booster in our offices. If you've been waiting to get your vaccine and/or booster, now is the time! Please call our offices or speak to our staff about our vaccine protocol. If it is more convenient for you to get your vaccine elsewhere, please don't wait, go get your vaccine as soon as possible. While vaccinated people can still get Covid, their symptoms are much more mild than those who are unvaccinated. We urge you to get vaccinated/boosted as soon as possible.
We are now open Monday-Friday 8:30am-5pm
