On June 17, 2021, I blogged on the CDC’s update of interim guidance on the subject of evaluating and caring for patients with post-COVID conditions. COCA (CDC Clinician Outreach and Communication Activity) also hosted a webinar on June 17th on the same subject. It was an excellent webinar. If you missed that webinar or want to listen again, it’s now available here. It’s 64 minutes in length. The corresponding handout is found here. Below are 2 slides from that presentation:
I recommend that you view the webinar and hang onto the slide deck for future reference. Both are packed with great information. The pandemic isn’t done with us yet. We still have the very real threat of variants with the Delta variant being extremely dangerous. We also are still a long way from achieving community immunity. Post-COVID conditions will be a part of health care management and restoration of an individual’s health for a long time.
I’ll leave you with the recommendation to get vaccinated if you haven’t already as well as to be sure to get the second dose of the vaccine to ensure you have the best protection against COVID and serious complications. Encourage your loved ones and friends to get vaccinated as well.
