Healthcare Certification Programs Article on Vaccine and Second Doses Against Covid

Second does with Moderna and Phizer are extremely important in reducing the chance of contracting or spreading COVID 19.  The first dose merely primes the immune system and gives only foundation resistance to the virus.  The second dose gives most over 90 percent resistance and gives individuals the freedom to be inside or outside without a mask.  So far in clinical studies, efficacy is at 6 months and potentially more as more case studies reveal how effective the the vaccine is.

Vaccinations are important. Please also review AIHCP’s Healthcare Certification Program

 

It is important as Americans to receive the vaccinations, ignore the foolish rhetoric and help the world heal from this great pandemiC

 

The article, “Your Second Vaccine Dose Is Key Against COVID-19 Variants” from Healthline takes a closer look at the importance of the second dose of the vaccine.  It states,

“The PHE study analyzed data for all age groups and several ethnicities from April 5, and included a little over 1,000 people confirmed to have an infection with this variant using genomic sequencing.  Importantly, both vaccines were only about 33 percent effective against symptomatic disease from B.1.617.2 and only 50 percent effective against the more common variant first detected in the United Kingdom (B.1.1.7) after a single dose.  However, after two doses, researchers found that the Pfizer vaccine was 88 percent effective against symptomatic disease from the B.1.617.2 variant, and 93 percent effective against the B.1.1.7 variant. These percentages were recorded 2 weeks after the second dose.”

Whether boosters or new vaccines will be needed are up to us as a society.  Do we listen to dangerous rhetoric or follow science?  If we do not, the virus will continue to mutate and potentially evolve into new variants that are resistant to the vaccine.  It is important to become vaccinated and stop Covid19.

Pushing The Limits Of Visual Impairment: How Professionals Are Building A Career In The Medical Field

Doctor holding a clipboardWritten by Lucy Peters

Up until the 1950s, living with a disability was considered incompatible with continued medical practice. Yet nearly 50% of Americans with visual impairments are still not in the labor force today, according to the Journal of Visual Impairment and Blindness. But with major advancements in medical technology, patient care has reached a point where physicians can now consult a patient and prescribe medications online, without the need for physical interaction. As a result, this helps professionals gain the advantage of erasing the stigma of individuals with visual disabilities and build their careers.

Physicians With Visual Impairment 

There have been cases of doctors having a visual impairment and still managing to achieve their dreams of becoming certified physicians. One example is David Hartman, who was diagnosed with retinal detachment and glaucoma in childhood. Through perseverance, he graduated from medical school and became a board-certified psychiatrist. His work on the addiction recovery field was rewarded in 2019 at the National Conference on Addiction Disorders. Although he faced numerous difficulties in building his career, he developed certain programs for patients as the chief of adult outpatient psychiatry in Carillon Clinic in Virginia. His work has inspired movies and literature that proves that blindness and other disabilities cannot stop someone from building a promising career.

Different Paths In The Medical Field

There are numerous programs and specializations that can be accessed by individuals with visual impairment. If one decides to pursue a career in medicine, specializations in psychiatry and psychology are the most suitable due to a reliance on speech and understanding rather than a keen eye for physical symptoms and immediate action in emergencies. This is heavily advantageous for the physician, as the patient is not made aware of the disabilities they may have, prompting them to return and not be worried to seek counsel.

Understanding The Potential Risks

These are trying times for those with blindness or visual impairment who have frequently relied on the sense of touch. With the recent coronavirus compromising the sense of mobility and independence for many, those living with blindness are at a higher risk of infection. Healthcare employees must follow extra safety measures to protect against diseases, such as keeping your body and daily eye care items sanitized at all times.

Perseverance Is Key

Each step will be difficult when it comes to achieving your goals and dealing with visual impairment. But this shouldn’t discourage anyone from building a promising medical career. Having a stable support system and a workplace that is strictly against discrimination is also important in defining one’s career, as there will always be challenges for those living with a disability.

Vision loss can be extremely frustrating to come to terms with, but it does not make a person incapable of doing the same things as their non-visually impaired peers. Having a successful medical career while living with a visual impairment is always possible when you have the proper mindset to overcome any obstacles along the way.
