COVID-19 Vaccine: What You Need To Know

We are in the middle of a public health crisis. At almost a year into the COVID-19 pandemic, infection, hospitalization and death rates are skyrocketing toward all time highs. This weeks numbers suggest that nearly two people died from COVID-19 every minute this past week. Infection rates are high, our hospitals are filling up and as the weather is getting colder, it is forcing us indoors and potentially into more exposures with upcoming holidays. It appears that the light at the end of the tunnel for all of this is the rapid development of a vaccine. And the good news is that a vaccine is on the way, in a matter of days, and here to talk to us about all things COVID vaccination is our resident expert and Hospital Incident Commander for COVID, Nurse Practitioner Patsy Stinchfield.

Many of us are seeing the ongoing mental health impact of the COVID pandemic, as young kids and adolescents are struggling now more than ever with depression, anxiety and stress, often to overwhelming degrees, ending up in the emergency department and looking for hard-to-find inpatient mental health beds. But what about the kids who are processing their stress, anxiety and trauma primarily through physical symptoms? How might kids be presenting to our offices with physical complaints that are exacerbated by stress and how might we help them? Here to talk to us about a few ways that psychosocial symptoms show up in the pediatric ENT office is Dr. Tim Lander, medical director of our Pediatric ENT program here at Children’s Minnesota.
