A recent surge in Delta Variant Covid-19 cases has led to an increase in Covid related hospitalizations and deaths across the world.

Getting you Coronavirus vaccine is easy. All you need to do is bring a form of proper identification and your medical insurance card, if available.

The Delta variant is a deadlier mutated version of the Covid virus. Multiple studies have reported that the Delta variant has the ability to spread up to two or three times faster than other versions of the virus.

According to the CDC, about 83% of new Covid cases are of the Delta variant and the number of reported cases are still rising. The Delta variant has some resistance to the vaccine, and at least more resistances than the original virus.

This sudden rise in Covid cases is also due to another factor that works with the Delta variant; lack of vaccinations.

Generally, people are still hesitant about getting vaccinated. Most people are waiting for more studies to be released before they decide to get the shot.

Some people show reluctance to the vaccine because of the associated side effects, personal medical issues that may conflict with the vaccine, refuse vaccination because of political beliefs, or feel that they simply do not need the vaccine.

Lack of vaccinations have contributed to the recent surge of new Delta variant cases. Even though the Delta variant is somewhat resistant against the vaccines, they still offer a fair amount of protection. This includes vaccine brand Johnson & Johnson, despite the late controversy.

But, don't take my word for it.

An article from the Associated Press reported by Carla K. Johnson and Mike Stobbe on June 29, 2021 states, "breakthrough infections in fully vaccinated people accounted for fewer than 1,200 of more than 107,000 COVID-19 hospitalizations. That’s about 1.1%."

This means that nearly all of the new Covid cases are people who aren't fully vaccinated. This analysis highlights the severity of the situation and the only solution to slow the rise in new cases is to get vaccinated.

While some people have reported uncomfortable side effects due to the vaccines for up to only one week in rare cases, the prolonged effects from catching Covid-19 are a lot worse and may last a lot longer.

Long term side effects from Covid-19 include respiratory or breathing problems, joint and chest pain, trouble sleeping and headaches.

If we all collectively get immunized, we can protect our families, ourselves and finally look forward to putting an end to this virus.
