COVID-19, and the health precautions that came with it, has sparked a full range of human emotion, including fear, gratitude, anger, grief and hope.

When people are forced to uproot their lives amid a roller coaster of emotion, their mental health can suffer.

As vaccinations continue and the world gradually reopens, many people are feeling uneasy about returning to business as usual. There’s an official name for this feeling: re-entry anxiety.

Click here for my conversation with episode guests, Ines Casey, M.D., board-certified infectious disease specialist, and Marc Browning, PsyD, ABPP, RN, board-certified clinical psychologist, about about re-entry anxiety and how to overcome it.

Vaccines work, period! The goal of vaccination is to dramatically reduce your chance of getting a serious disease. Vaccination is singlehandedly the greatest intervention in the history of public health. This study is hot off the press from The New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM). Y’all know NEJM, which is arguably the global standard of medical journals. Two doses of the Pfizer vaccine is 88% effective against the delta variant.

I tell my patients this: Vaccines are like seatbelts in your car. You gotta wear them. Seatbelts don’t prevent car accidents from happening, but if you’re in one that seatbelt can soften the blow and save your life. If you happen to get COVID-19 and even develop some symptoms but have a vaccine already on board, then it will soften the blow and save your life, too.

Now that’s crushing it for real.
