IN THE NEWS:

Tracking Side Effects Once
a Vaccine is Administered
The Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) is a national
vaccine safety surveillance program co-sponsored by the Food and Drug
Administration (FDA) and the CDC.
VAERS collects and analyzes information from reports of adverse events
(side effects) that occur after the administration of US licensed vaccines.
Reports are welcome from all concerned individuals: patients, parents,
healthcare providers, pharmacists, and vaccine manufacturers.

It is important to take affirmative steps to interact with others
when possible. Keep the six feet between you, but see your
friends and family. Call, text, Zoom and try to be in the physical
presence. If you can't be together, engage in the same activity
while in contact electronically. Watch the same show on Netflix
in real time and comment on the action, put the iPad by the
stove and make the same recipe together, or do an online yoga
class together. Our brains appreciate the simulation. It helps.
For those who traditionally rely on support groups such as
12-Step meetings, the move to an all-virtual platform has been
a two-edged sword. It is a lot easier to make a meeting if you
can do it in your living room in your pajamas. They are good
and helpful but lacking in the many other sensory elements that
make meetings powerful (like forcing you to get dressed).
For those struggling during this difficult time, the Physicians'
Health Program has compiled resources, which can be found
at www. foundationpamedsoc.org/physicians-health-program/
physician-burnout-resources.
Kenneth M. Certa, MD, is an associate professor of
psychiatry and human behavior at Sidney Kimmel
Medical College at Thomas Jefferson University in
Philadelphia. He is also a member of the Foundation of
the Pennsylvania Medical Society Board of Trustees.
