Pembina County Memorial Hospital Wedgewocd Manor y J 1m lMiller Dear Savvy Senior; Do currently oflered vaccines against pneumonia provide seniors any protection against the coron- avims disease? I’ve always been bad about getting vaccinated, but this coronavims pandemic is causing me to change my thinking. Pro- Vax Patty Dear Patty, This is a great question. Because the coronavirus (COVID-19) at- tacks the lungs and respiratory sys- tem, many readers have asked whether the pneumonia vaccines, which are administered to millions of patients each year, might protect someone if they contract the coron- avirus. ' But unfortunately, the answer is no. Vaccines against pneumonia, such as pneumococcal vaccine and Hacmophilus influenza type B vac- cine, do not provide protection against the new coronavirus. This virus is so new and different that it needs its own vaccine. Re- searchers are in the process of rap— idlv develo mg a vaccine against COVID-l9, utitrsexpectedtotake at least a year before it’s ready. Having said that, you should also know that there are several F01! THE TRO0PS‘ -Walsh County Veterans Service Office rtant vaccines the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that all seniors should get up to date on alter the coronavirus pandemic dies down. Here’s a rundown of what they are, When you should get them, and how they’re covered by Medicare. Flu vaccine: While annual flu shots are recommended each fall to everyone, they are very important for older adults to get because seniors have a much greater risk of devel- oping dangerous flu complications. According to the CDC, last year up to 647,000 people were hospitalized and 61,200 died because of the flu most of whom were age 65 and older. To improve your chances of es— caping the seasonal flu, this Sep— tember or October consider a vaccine specifically designed for people 65 and older. The Fluzone High Dose or FLUAD are the two options that provide extra protection beyond what a standard flu shot offers. And all flu shots are covered under Medicare Part B.

Over the past few years, at- titudes towards mental health issues appear to be changing for the better. Negative attitudes and stigma as- sociated with mental health have de— creased and there has been growing acceptance towards mental health is- sues and support for people with them. Veterans with mental health con- ditions that were either caused or ag- gravated by their milime service are eligible to receive service—connect- ed disability benefits from the De- partment of Veterans Affairs (VA). Veterans can apply for service con- nection right before or any time af- ter leaving active duty. All VA mental health claims fall into one of three categories: 1) PTSD Combat, 2) PTSD Non- Combat / Military Sexual Trauma (MST), and 3) All Other Mental Health Conditions. PTSD always has in-service stres- sors, which cause or make the PTSD worse, such as exposure to death, threatened death (fear or hostility), actual serious injury, threatened serious injury, actual sexual violence and threatened sex- ual violence. Moreover, PTSD can worsen if the Veteran has either of medication side effects, timritus, chronic pain, TBI, sleep apnea or in- somnia. .
