We’ve heard talk that the pandemic is “over”, but are we there? It’s been a while since we talked about COVID, but it’s still out there, mutating and spreading. In this episode, we catch up with our infectious disease specialist, Dr. Dean Blumberg, to get all the up to date information on the virus, the new bivalent vaccine, and the meds available for treatment and prophylaxis. We discuss what to expect for the upcoming cold and flu season, and we get an update on monkeypox. Bottom line, the next few months aren’t going to be pretty. Go get your flu shot and your bivalent booster!
We got our vaccines, have you? 💉 Share your questions and concerns with us on social media, @empulsepodcast, or through our website, ucdavisem.com.
