Covid-19 Q&A

What do I need to know about COVID-19?

COVID-19, or the novel coronavirus, is an infectious disease that caused a worldwide pandemic.

While most people affected with COVID-19 experience mild to moderate symptoms, some become seriously ill and require special treatment. People with weakened immune systems of underlying chronic diseases, like diabetes or cancer, are at particular risk of developing complications due to COVID-19. 

The best way to protect yourself from COVID-19 is to practice regular hand washing and social distancing. You spread the virus through sneezing, coughing, or breathing. These activities spread small liquid particles that carry the virus into other people’s respiratory systems. 

Who should get a COVID-19 vaccine?

Anyone five years or older is eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine. Adults and teens also benefit from boosters to protect their health. 

Several manufacturers offer FDA-approved COVID-19 vaccines, and the team at Integrative Wellness Center advises you on the best type depending on your lifestyle, current health, and age. 

Are COVID-19 vaccines safe?

COVID-19 vaccines underwent serious testing and are safe. The Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines meet the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) rigorous safety and manufacturing quality standards. 

The FDA subjected these vaccines to some of the most intense monitoring ever provided.

Do I need to schedule a COVID-19 test?

PCR testing is considered the gold standard when it comes to COVID-19 testing. It provides accurate results that are far more reliable than those from the tests you perform at home. 

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends you get a test: 

  • Five days after exposure to someone with the virus  
  • If you have symptoms like coughing, runny nose, sore throat, and loss of taste or smell 
  • If a close loved one or colleague has COVID-19
  • You work in health care or schools
  • You plan to travel

The team at Integrative Wellness Center makes COVID-19 testing a regular part of your evaluation if you present any symptoms associated with the virus.
