Now that COVID-19 vaccines are making their way into the general community, many people are wondering which vaccine they should get when it’s their turn in line. The one that comes in one dose or two? 66 percent vs. 95 percent effective? One that uses mRNA or DNA?

[Our caregiver] with radiology was great. She put [my son] at ease when he was really scared [too get a kidney ultrasound]. It really helped when she let him see the different tools and explained everything to him. She really listened to him. Thanks for being thorough and kind during a stressful time for us.

The nursing staff was phenomenal … I could go on and on because all of our nurses were just wonderful. There are so many nurses, [I can’t thank them all] only because I can’t remember their names.

Davis Technical College recently hosted a “suture cutting” event to celebrate the official opening of its new Allied Health Building on its campus in Kaysville.

A few months prior to delivering my first baby, I switched jobs, which also meant switching insurances. My pregnancy was moderate to high risk, and I had the additional stress of having a new job and a new docrtor on top of everything else. I read reviews about Dr. Karen Bradley and chose her to be my provider and decided to have my baby at Intermountain Layton Hospital because the hospital is close to my home. Dr. Bradley put my fears at ease. She really prepared me and my husband for everything. The staff at Layton Hospital were wonderful! They talked me through everything. Everyone, from the nursing staff to my two midwives — Leah and Celeste — made my family’s experience fantastic! They made my child birth a seamless pleasurable experience in a situation that could have been traumatic.

Someone asked me the other day how things have changed since more and more people are getting the COVID-19 vaccine. The truth is, it’s night and day different. As the medical director of Infectious Diseases TeleHealth at Intermountain Healthcare, I’ve had a front-row seat to the devastation caused by the virus. In the past couple of months, we’ve seen fewer cases of serious illness and death. Our ICUs and other hospital units are feeling less stress.

America started to breathe a little easier once the first COVID-19 vaccines were rolled out. But experts warn that we still have a few more laps to run to beat the virus because of new variants entering the race.
