Common symptoms of the original COVID-19 Alpha Variant:
The Delta variant is highly contagious, nearly twice as contagious as previous variants. It is currently a state mandate to wear a mask in public indoor places, even if fully vaccinated, to help slow the spread of the virus.
When you get vaccinated, your risk of getting very sick or being hospitalized is significantly lower than someone who has not been vaccinated. At Lane, approximately 90% of our hospitalized COVID-19 patients have not been vaccinated.
When you are ready to get the vaccine, please call Lane Family Practice to schedule an appointment, 225-654-3607.
