So it appears we should be strongly considering this vaccine if we are in the high risk groups. such as pregnancy, children under 17, people with asthma or lung disease and anyone with a weakened immune system from disease. People in families with very young babies should also consider vaccination.
Healthcare workers are also considered high risk. Here in Mexico the only people who will be receiving the vaccine are healthcare workers. How fortunate we are in the US.As of this coming week I will finally be receiving a shipment of the vaccine. I will be returning from a wonderful rest in Mexico this weekend and the office opens on Monday, November 30. We already have a "reservation" list of high risk patients in our practice and will begin phoning them next week for a vaccine appointment. Anyone else in the practice who wishes a shot, please let us know next week.
