Arthritis At Home Episode 131 – Are you fully up to date with COVID vaccinations?
COVID-19 is back in the news as a sub-variant of Omicron is spreading quickly and people who are vaccinated or who have recovered from COVID-19 as recently as March or April are finding themselves exhausted, coughing and staring at a positive rapid test. How did we get here and what does it mean for immunocompromised patients living with an inflammatory arthritis?
In this episode of Arthritis At Home, Kelly Lendvoy speaks to Dr. Jane Purvis, one of Canada’s leading rheumatologists, about this new wave and the importance of people being fully up to date with their COVID-19 vaccinations.
