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.
– QUESTIONS from “Joey Pals”.
1. Why do some people NOT develop antibodies AFTER they have the disease? (Antibodies are only a part of your immune system. No acceptable level of antibodies that mean you are immune to Covid. There really is NO TEST @ a pharmacy that will give you any clearance to do anything or tell you how well you will fight off an infection.)
2.  Do I have different immune cells for all the things I have had/am vaccinated against? (All different antibodies/immune cells have different shapes.)
– REPORT that this is one type of the Corona Virus, but Corona Virus causes the common cold. ACOG recommends SHOULD GET the vaccine. There are lots of things a pregnant/nursing woman should take.
3. New studies about how long natural immunity will last? (Unvaccinated and had Covid = still 5 times more likely to test positive for Covid and you don’t know how BAD you Covid case might be.)
– REPORT that you CAN GET COVID AGAIN. But because D.O.H.C. is reporting all their findings we know more about this virus than any other in the shortest amount of time.
4. What about risks associated w/ boosters? (No different than the risks when you got the original series of shots).
– REPORT that D.O.H.C.’s clinics are open Mon. – Friday @ P.S. & Indio & Yucca Valley FOR BOTH FLU AND COVID.  By appointment please.  FREE. Go on www.mydohc.com.
