COVID-19 Testing Jackson Heights
COVID-19 Test Now Available at Jackson Heights Urgent Care
The Omicron subvariant of COVID-19, BA.5, is now the predominant strain in the U.S. as per the CDC. It’s the most infectious strain to date and is able to evade immunity from prior COVID infections or vaccinations. The symptoms however are same as for other COVID strains. Being vaccinated helps protect you against severe disease. The CDC data that shows risk of death was four times higher for those over age 50 who had only the first booster, compared with those who had two boosters of COVID two boosters of COVID vaccines. New research shows that repeated COVID infection (asymptomatic, too) increases the risk for complications and long COVID. These include stroke, heart attack, diabetes, GI and kidney disorders and memory issues. The more the number of people infected, the more the chances for new variants to emerge. Vaccination is therefore encouraged.
