Pfizer says COVID-19 vaccine will cost $110-$130 per dose

Covid vaccines are still free to you, for now. In a few months, that may not be the case. There are lots of new variants popping up, but so far fairly well covered by the bivalent shots. So if you haven't gotten yours, there's another incentive.

Pfizer says COVID-19 vaccine will cost $110-$130 per dose Pfizer will charge $110 to $130 for a dose of its COVID-19 vaccine once the U.S. government stops buying the shots, but the drugmaker says it expects many people will continue receiving it for free. Pfizer executives said the commercial pricing for adult doses could start early next year, depending....

If you haven’t ordered your 3 rounds of free covid tests, you have until Sept 2. Just keep submitting orders until the website tells you that you’re maxed out. https://t.co/nPzdDqClEg This is a good, comprehensive twitter thread with all the details I could think of. You can order for others. Don’t forget to check expiration dates.

Driving directions: There’s a bit of construction happening, but it’s pretty easy to navigate. Turn into Herschel from Oak Lawn, across the street from the Shops of Highland Park, so you can’t take a wrong turn there. The entrance to the parking garage is on the right. Park in any visitor space and take the elevator to L. Cross to the other elevator and go up to 3. Turn right and you’ll find us.

If you're not entering via the parking garage: The building entrance is on Herschel, across from the dry cleaner. Go straight through, then take an elevator from the left (not to the parking garage, only one button). Go up to 3 and turn right.

The new office is so coordinated. The autumn crows came home with me. I’m not sure where to hang my diplomas or display my license. I grew up in Alabama, and dogwoods were special to my grandmother, so this will do.

I know for most people it's "What pandemic?" But I do have immunocompromised patients and patients with high risk family. I run the HEPA constantly, and I wear an N95. I keep an eye on who is going to be in the treatment room next, so if I do ask you to wear a mask, be cool, okay?

Lucy Liu* has been quoted as saying acupuncturists can tell when you've been drinking too much. I haven't had that experience, but the other day I did notice a patient's pulse being "slippery, which points to an earth imbalance, that can come up through overindulgence in alcohol, sweets, or excess fatty foods." Said patient went lol, "I ate chicken fried steak for lunch yesterday."

*I'd repost a tabloid article, but seeing as there is an acupuncturist named Lucy Liu now, I can't look it up!

Why cases of back pain have increased during the pandemic

Of course we’d love to see you, but here are some tips for at home maintenance.

Why cases of back pain have increased during the pandemic Back pain has been one of the country’s leading health concerns. Dr. Carson Fairbanks, an orthopedic spine surgeon on the medical staff at Texas Health Southwest Fort Worth, told KERA’s Sam Baker he's seeing more aches and pains in the neck, mid-back, and lower back.

There is a little clock on the shelf where I keep my pillows, and I knocked it off when I put a pillow back. The patient on the table was startled, and when I explained what had happened, said, "Killing time?" 😎

If you have health insurance, save your receipts! You can be reimbursed for $12 per home covid test as of January 15. The linked site goes live on Wednesday the 19th, and you will be able to order 4 tests per household per month.

Everybody may well catch Omicron, many without needing hospitalization, but if you're paying attention to schools, hospitals, businesses, and trash pick up, you might have noticed it is pretty inconvenient for the entire world to be sick at once. You can be contagious before you start feeling sick, so please mask up indoors, over both nose and mouth, when you're not at home.

COVIDtests.gov - Free at-home COVID-19 tests Every home in the U.S. can soon order 4 free at-home COVID-19 tests. The tests will be completely free—there are no shipping costs and you don't need to enter a credit card number.

I will be doing NYE in my pajamas at home, but this may be worth exploring, if you are going to combine households. (Throat swab may be more sensitive to Omicron than nasal. 20-30 min after eating or drinking, go for the tonsils and try not to touch tongue or teeth.)

As always, stay alive, don't drink and drive. And get some rest. Any New Year's resolutions I come up with I'll try to implement for Lunar New Year instead of trying to start on Saturday.

Michael Mina on Twitter “Symptoms are starting v early w Omicron (for a number of reasons I’ve discussed) This means that there is a chance the virus isnt yet growing in the nose when you first test Virus may start further down. Throat swab + nasal may improve chances a swab picks up virus. https://t.co/NfxHqjKpIo”

We can process your HSA or FSA cards. Now is the time to start planning if you have a use it or lose it account!

Our office does not bill insurance, but sometimes you can get reimbursed. If it's through health insurance, check that you have acupuncture benefits, that the provider may be out of network, if there is a deductible and how much has been met, if preauthorization is required, and if there are diagnosis requirements or other limitations. We can give you a superbill to submit to your insurance if applicable.

And the next time your company is doing open enrollment, check and see if acupuncture is a covered option. Again, we're not in network, but I've had some folks ask for the superbill where it's not insurance but they do get reimbursed as part of a discount plan.

If you’re doing fertility treatments and you tell me your doctor said not to get vaccinated, something’s not right. For those of y’all who saw me earlier this year and said you were waiting for more data, here you go.

Today, CDC issued an urgent health advisory to increase COVID-19 vaccination among people who are pregnant, recently pregnant, who are trying to become pregnant now, or who might become pregnant in the future to prevent serious illness, deaths, and adverse pregnancy outcomes.

Today's health advisory strongly recommends COVID-19 vaccination either before or during pregnancy because the benefits of vaccination for both pregnant persons and their fetus or infant outweigh known or potential risks.

Additionally, the advisory calls on health departments and clinicians to educate pregnant people on the benefits of vaccination and the safety of recommended vaccines.

Per CDC guidelines for a medical setting, masks are still required in the clinic. Please get vaccinated.

The last five patients with COVID-19 who Dr. Luke White cared for in the ICU did not get vaccinated because:

1. "They did. They got their first dose the day before symptoms started."
2. "They gave no reason but said, 'I'm going to after I get through this!' I don't know when they will, because we sent them to an academic hospital for a heart-lung bypass."
3. "They had it 'on their list of things to do.'"
4. "They didn't believe in COVID, vaccination or masks. They died."
5. "I didn't ask. Their spouse had died from COVID the morning they were admitted. Asking seemed cruel."

Dr. White is a Beacon Medical Group critical care and pulmonary specialist who works in the Memorial and Elkhart General critical care and intensive care units.

Please help us end the pandemic and get vaccinated.

Almost as soon as I saw the news about Gov Abbott lifting the mask mandate, I saw this from Manning Wellness Clinic:

"Although Governor Abbott is ending the mask mandate and allowing businesses, including ours, to operate at 100% as of next Wednesday, we will be keeping our current Covid protocols in place.
*We will continue to limit the number of patients in the office at the same time to maintain distance
*We ask all patients to please continue to wear masks at all times while they're in the office
* We will also continue to completely clean and sterilize all areas between patients
"

Although I cannot physically stop someone from removing their mask when they go face down into the headrest, I urge people to realize that the virus is airborne, and when you remove your mask, you might not be the first person to do that today. I disinfect surfaces between each patient, but it's not foolproof.

Quotes from the table: “This is the best thing you’ve ever bought.”

re: hot towel cabinet, and they’re right! A steamy towel really elevates the cupping experience, already great for tight, sore muscles.

I’m off Thursday and Friday this week for Thanksgiving, but I’m otherwise still open for appointments Sunday-Friday. Face coverings (nose and mouth) required in the office.
