FDA Authorizes Moderna, Pfizer-BioNTech Bivalent COVID-19 Vaccines for Use as a Booster Dose

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration amended the emergency use authorizations of the Moderna and PfizerNTech vaccines to include the updated bivalent boosters. Bivalent refers to the vaccine containing two messenger RNA (mRNA) components of SARS-CoV-2 virus, one of the original strain of SARS-CoV-2 and the other one in common between the BA.4 and BA.5 lineages of the omicron variant of SARS-CoV-2. You can find more information about the authorization, here.

CDC updates masking guidelines

On March 4th, 2022, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention updated their masking guidelines. Relying on designations of low, medium, and high transmission for counties nationwide, the CDC shared that most people in areas with low or medium community levels can drop their masks indoors. People in high community levels should still wear a mask in public indoor settings, according to the guidance. The agency noted that people who are at higher risk for Covid — or those who live with people who are at risk — may still want to take extra precautions, including wearing masks, regardless of their own community status. Masks may still be required on interstate transportation systems, such as airplanes, buses and trains, and at airports, according to the Transportation Security Administration.

I have never met a doctor or person in the medical field that has impressed me as much as Dr. Courtney. At first I thought she was a bit brusk and dismissive, but as I continued appreciating her expertise in my examination, I discovered that her demeanor was better described as efficient, thorough and deliberately extensive. I became a huge fan because of her ability to immediately address every concern of mine, assess causes and related conditions that I was unaware of and to an extensive follow through on each and every detail. She has been so complete in her interviews and referrals that I have literally found her to be responsible for possibly saving my life by determining that I may have lung cancer, which I do, and that finding out this early has given me a greater chance for survival. When all the assessment was done during our last encounter she took the time to talk to me on a more personal level and came across as one the most caring and emotionally supportive individuals I have ever encountered. I read some of the other reviews and it quickly became obvious to me that any negative reviews were most likely from individuals attempting to cast her in an inappropriate negative light, rejected patients that I can only conclude were weeded out due to their drug seeking, not for legitimate medical reasons. She is brilliant, she is kind and she is not going to waste valuable time on false premises presented by disingenuous claims. She is too smart for that. I can’t praise her enough, thank you Susan from the bottom of my heart.

Thank You, From The Bottom of My Heart!

We have been seeing Dr. Courtney and staff for over a decade, she is a very caring and concerned about our health. I know she may come across as terse to some people because of her ‘Just the facts’ questioning so she can get to a root of the medical issue and a correct diagnosis.
I totally trust Dr. Courtney and her staff and would definitely recommend her practice to friends and family and everyone.
