[04/17/21]   Breakthrough cases of Covid-19 refer to cases that happen even when both patients are fully vaccinated. Vaccine efficacy is amazingly high but not 100%. SC has had 155 breakthrough cases that we know of so far.

As the authors of the Israel study stated: “These results overall suggest that vaccine breakthrough infection is more frequent with variants of concern, yet a combination of mass-vaccination coupled with non-pharmaceutical interventions control and contain their spread.”

A friendlier option for allergy sufferers, Priority Care introduces new way to treat the cause of allergies to Charlotte, NC - Melissa Jones DO Primary Care

Starting April, 12, 2021: Though there are 50-60 million allergy sufferers in the U.S., only a fraction receive treatment that can change the underlying disease. Instead, most suffer with their symptoms, try to avoid problem allergens, or treat symptoms temporarily with prescriptions and over-the-counter medications. But now, allergy sufferers in Charlotte, NC have another option for treating the cause—not just the symptoms—of their allergies....

Employers Offer Direct Primary Care to Employees in Charlotte, NC 04/05/2021

Employers Offer Direct Primary Care to Employees in Charlotte, NC

Direct Care is an excellent benefit to offer your employees, increases value and employee satisfaction. The businesses that I work with are giving great feedback. Works well for small businesses that can't afford benefits but pay the monthly membership so their employees have access to healthcare and less days out of work. Also pairs well with a self-funded plan similar to a more traditional model but with more value, less hassle, and less claims/costs. #healthcare #employeebenefits #benefits #work #smallbusiness #healthinsurance

So proud to be working with Austin Drugs’s Harry Patel. See recent news segment about how he and his wife of Indian Trail Dental Studio plan to bring vaccines to their community:

Indian Trail family working to turn dental practice into COVID-19 vaccine, testing site Harry Patel said he is working with his wife, Hasmi, to hopefully use her dental practice as a larger site for distributing the COVD-19 vaccine and test.

[01/22/21]   Shopping around for healthcare coverage? Consider a healthshare plan for catastrophic events to go along with a DPC membership. With a DPC and HealthShare plan, you could not only have coverage, but also **care** which is the missing piece of insurance. Below is some information on the different health share plan options. Reach out and send a message if you have any questions.

#dpc #northcarolina #charlotte #plazamidwood #noda #healthinsurance #heydocigotaquestion

[12/31/20]   Appears there is a new battle involving the more infectious strain of Covid-19. The UK will implement a strategy of giving only the 1st dose of the Pfizer and AstraZeneca vaccines. Their hope is to immunize more of the population faster due to a shortage of vaccines and/or a problem in the process of getting people vaccinated with 2 doses. US has not adopted this strategy and there is some debate whether we should. For reference, Moderna vaccine is being given to nursing home/assisted living residents and staff by CVS and Walgreens. Each states’ health departments and hospitals are distributing Pfizer vaccine. AstraZeneca has not been approved in the US yet. I’m posting this because this new development will cause anxiety and stress as people perceive it to be another change with questionable motives. The motive is to save lives and prevent suffering. Please let the scientific community study this and make recommendations-as this virus evolves, so must our battle strategy. Whether this is a good move or not remains to be seen.
