Preventing Long Covid

With over 65 Million People Suffer From Long Covid.  The only way to prevent long Covid is to not be infected. Therefore a new series of updated vaccines are an essential tool in our ongoing fight against Covid-19.  Vaccines reduce the chance of getting Covid-19 and long Covid and can mitigate the impact of both. Specifically, vaccine shots are especially important heading into the winter months, when Covid-19, flu and RSV rates spike.  See December COVID News

In summary, as transmission, hospitalizations and deaths from the virus rose this fall, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in September approved two updated vaccines for emergency use, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that everyone over the age of 6 months gets a shot.
