接種加强劑幷在這個節日季給自己一份健康好禮

撰稿:UC Davis Health,Dali Fan醫生 冬天很快就要來臨幷且天氣也將轉冷。現在爲自己和家人接種疫苗和加强劑來預防COVID-19比以往任何時候都更重要。隨著年齡的增長,因COVID-19而嚴重致病的風險也會增加,所以接種升級版加强劑對年滿65歲者是至關重要的。 感染COVID-19在較年長成人群中造成的住院及死亡率最高,而接種COVID-19加强劑可以幫助降低感染及嚴重致病的風險。50至64歲之間的成年人比18至29歲之間的成年人因COVID-19而死亡的可能性要高25倍。65至74歲之間的成年人因COVID-19而死亡的可能性則會顯著上升,與較年輕成年人相比高60倍。我們知道較年長成年人在及時接種加强劑後就可以最有效的預防嚴重病症。接種疫苗和加强劑可以幫助降低住院人數幷避免醫院及護理中心超負荷運轉。 我是一名醫生;我關心您的健康幷懇請您爲抗擊疫情僅自己的一份力——接種疫苗和加强劑來保護自己和您的親人。如果您感到生病了,請務必在這個節日季參加任何聚會之前去做檢測,從而最大程度降低傳播給他人的風險。當我們在這個節日季期盼與家人和朋友見面時,我想在此分享一些常見問題的答案,從而確保您和您的家人能受到保護。 問:如果預期感染率高,與家人共度佳節還安全碼? 答:我們知道與家人和朋友相聚是一個重要的節日傳統。當聚會時,我强烈建議您采取適當措施來保證每個人的安全。這就意味著設立規矩是合理的,從而大家都能安全歡慶。在聚會前,鼓勵您的朋友和家人: 接種疫苗及升級版加强劑在聚會前後去做COVID檢測如果感到生病了就待在家中考慮佩戴口罩。這裏有個不錯的主意:作爲主人的您可以把一籃口罩放在門口以鼓勵賓客們佩戴口罩。 問:我感到COVID-19的威脅不再像以往一樣危險了。我還需要帶口罩嗎? 答:在公共室內場所佩戴口罩也可以幫助降低很多不同呼吸系統病毒的傳播,其中包括呼吸道合胞病毒(RSV)、流感及COVID。 我們所有人都對COVID-19聽煩了,但是病毒還在這裏幷繼續影響著我們的生活。研究表明COVID-19已經把我們的整體平均壽命削减了5年,幷對有色人種社區造成的影響更加嚴重。雖然有色人種社區不成比例的受到影響的原因有很多,但是我們知道接種疫苗和及時接種升級版加强劑可以幫助消除這個差异幷提高健康狀况。 問:我的父母和(或)祖父母剛在上個春季接種過疫苗,爲什麽我還應該優先爲他們接種升級版加强劑呢? 答:加强劑可以幫助維持對嚴重病症的抵抗力。這就是爲什麽鼓勵年長人群去接種升級版加强劑尤爲重要。這可以降低他們得COVID-19的風險,幷且如果得病了也可以把對健康的影響减少到最低。另外,得COVID-19後可能會出現一些長期症狀,比如中風、偏頭痛、記憶問題、抑鬱及焦慮、抽搐及震顫等其他類似帕金森病的症狀。 問:我年輕、健康。爲什麽還需要接種升級版加强劑呢? 答:COVID-19和它的變種正在流行中。即使您已經感染過COVID-19幷接種過COVID-19疫苗,我們也推薦您接種升級版加强劑,因爲它可以幫助維持您對嚴重病症的抵抗力幷降低住院及死亡的風險。 問:我是否符合接種加强劑的條件?我以爲它們僅限于特定人群接種。 答:每位年滿5歲者都有資格接種加强劑,且我們也鼓勵您去接種。及時接種COVID-19疫苗及升級版加强劑爲您提供最佳的保護。這就是爲什麽當您符合條件時儘快去接種加强劑如此重要。多數情况下,您在接種最後一劑疫苗兩個月後即具備資格。另外,加强劑可以與您曾經接種過的疫苗品牌不同,且這樣也不會影響其保護效用。 問:我剛接種過流感疫苗。接種加强劑還安全嗎? 答:安全!同時接種流感疫苗和升級版加强劑不僅方便而且非常安全。 我們知道節日期間是一年中的忙碌之時。請盡自己的一份力來保持健康,這樣才可以從現在到新年之時與家人和朋友盡情的歡慶。 進一步瞭解如何保證安全幷今天就預約接種您的下一劑疫苗或加强劑,請訪問MyTurn.ca.gov或撥打833-422-4255。

歡慶中秋佳節,注意防範COVID-19

Khanh Banh,Southland Integrated Services社區健康宣導者 中秋佳節即將來臨。它為大家提供了與家人和密友歡聚一堂、共同慶祝的機會。雖然大家都通過自己家庭中或文化裡獨特的方式來慶祝,但是我們對家人和朋友的愛是相同的。同時,在送上感謝與福綠壽喜的祝福之時,我們都想要保證他們的安全。 在僅一周多一些的時間內,我們就會與來自遠方和近鄰的家人團聚、去參加當地的慶祝活動、當然也少不了吃月餅。因此,在歡聚之時,保持警惕並為自己預防COVID-19也是非常重要的。當COVID-19還在流行之時,盡可能有效的保護自己、家人及我們的社區是咱們每個人的責任。 為自己預防COVID-19的首要方法就是接種疫苗及加強劑,這樣我們就可以通過增強免疫力來多獲得一層保護。接種疫苗不僅可以降低您感染COVID-19的幾率,也會降低出現嚴重併發症的風險。COVID-19疫苗是安全、有效的,並且現在可以為滿6個月的孩子接種。拖延等待是沒有理由的。滿五歲的孩子也可以去接種加強劑,對此我們高度推薦。 如果您要聚會,即使已經全劑量接種了疫苗和加強劑也請記得在室內戴上口罩。儘管很多地方都不再要求戴口罩了,加州公共衛生部(CDPH)仍強烈建議您在室內場所戴上口罩。 最後,如果您感到生病了,請待在家中以避免傳播給他人,並使用居家測試來檢測自己是否得了COVID-19。 在中秋節時全家都會聚在一起,這樣做就尤為重要。如果您攜帶這個具有高度傳播性的病毒,請進行隔離。儘管錯過聚會挺令人掃興,但是拿朋友和家人的健康來冒險是不值得的。 我想要讓自己的家人和社區都保證安全,所以我會盡自己的一份力來遵循CDPH的COVID-19建議。我鼓勵大家所有人也這樣做。當我們在這個節日中歡聚一堂時,請記住:沒有什麼比健康更寶貴的了。保護自己和家人,請確保所有人都接種疫苗和加強劑。 如果您還需要接種疫苗或加強劑,現在比以往都更方便。訪問MyTurn.ca.gov或撥打833-422-4255,今天就進行預約。瞭解更多有關COVID-19的訊息,請訪問Covid19.ca.gov。
