Eight reasons why now is the best time to get your COVID-19 vaccination
More than half of Californians have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19, according to the California Department of Public Health. Many of those who haven’t been vaccinated have reservations, which is understandable. But the good news is these vaccines have been thoroughly tested, and they’ve proven to be safe and effective.
The CDC recommends that people should get a vaccine as soon as possible. Unlike a few months ago, the state now has millions of doses available and has opened eligibility to those aged 12 and above. DAP Health offers two different COVID-19 vaccines (Moderna and Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen). Here are eight reasons why now is the best time to get vaccinated.
Self HIV tests are another tool to treat HIV, protect health
One of the most important things people can do for their health is to learn their HIV status. Self HIV tests are one of the answers, and DAP Health provides them to anyone who asks for one, writes C.J. Tobe.
No one struggling with HIV is alone. Once a person takes a free self HIV test from DAP Health, he/she/they will have a support system on which to rely. And that person will be able to have an open, judgment-free conversation about their sexual practices with an expert educator certified by the state.
There are treatments available that allow people to thrive with HIV. For example, a person living with HIV can take one pill a day, and their viral load will become undetectable. That means he/she/they won’t transmit the virus. Undetectable is un-transmittable. U=U.
