Note From A Nurse. Fall 2021
Happy Fall Y'all!
Autumn will be here shortly. I can already smell the scent of pumpkin spice and hear the crunch of fallen leaves. For many of us this is a welcome reprieve from summer’s heat and humidity. Let’s consider a few key recommendations from the CDC to have a healthy and happy fall season.
1. We would all love to be back to normal life, unfortunately Covid is still with us. Immunocompromised people are currently eligible for a third dose of Pfizer or Moderna vaccine. Are you currently taking immunosuppressive medications or treatments? Do you have moderate or severe primary immunodeficiency? Talk to your doctor and see if a booster shot is right for you. https://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/covid-19/clinical-considerations/covid-19-vaccines-us.html#considerations-additional-vaccine-dose
2. Booster shots are not yet approved for everyone. It is anticipated that the FDA and CDC will authorize booster shots around the end of September. People who have received Pfizer or Moderna vaccines will be eligible for a booster eight months after their second dose.
3. September and October and good times to be vaccinated against influenza. Remember, it takes two weeks after vaccination for antibodies to develop and provide protection against the flu. Flu vaccine and COVID-19 vaccine can be given at the same time.
4. And lastly, don’t forget to use your 3 W’s to protect yourself from both COVID-19 and influenza.
