D.O.H.C. w/ Dr. Lindsey Valenzuela re: 275 El Cielo Rd., Palm Springs, 92262. “Your Health, Your Life, Our Passion”. Vice President of Population Health and Health Integration.
– DISCUSSION of Sept., 11, 2001.
– QUESTIONS FROM Joey Pals in the “Medicine Cabinet”.
1. Are we going back to mask mandates? From a John Hopkins Study and an article in the NY Times that masks did no good. (As far as Lindsey knows, no masks mandates here locally. Use common sense. Possibly masks in schools and/or hospitals. Masks are effective in reducing the transmission of the virus. The masks are not carcinogenic.)
– REPORT that the risk of spreading a virus goes up after 15 minutes.
2. How protected are you if you are vaccinated AND boosted? (Does not mean you will NEVER get ill. Most likely will not get hospitalized or dead. If you have HAD Covid, you will be even more protected.)
– REPORT that the new vaccine will be out in October.
– REPORT on the fact that we are now in respiratory infection Season, some Covid cases actually developed in people who went to a hospital for SOMETHING ELSE and developed Covid while there.
– REPORT that Flu Vaccination Season is here and flu clinics & drive-thru vaccination centers for D.O.H.C. members are open. No co-pay for D.O.H.C. Seniors. Should vaccinate down to 6 months-olds. Pharmacies give out the most vaccinations. Quadravalent is the new vaccine, covers 4 strains of the flu virus. Predicted from the effect of flu in the Southern Hemisphere. This strain of flu is pretty bad in Australia, especially in the children.
– REPORT that @ this point in time the Covid Vaccine is FREE to everyone, not just members.
– REPORT on the D.O.H.C. facilities around the Valley.
