As a pediatrician, I deal with vaccines all day every day. I am not old enough to remember when the polio vaccine first became available, but I can imagine that the excitement for it was similar to the excitement for the Covid vaccine's unveiling. Like many others, I have signed up to get the vaccine and am trying to wait patiently (which is hard because I am so excited!). Vaccine science will be forever changed with the advent of this mRNA vaccine. As a doctor who focuses on prevention, I cannot wait to see what the future holds!
#Social #Anxiety can be very stressful for children and can prevent them from making friends and performing well in school. Never hesitate to bring your child to the #Pediatrician or #ChildPsychiatrist if you notice him/her to be sad, not have friends in school, or have difficulties with academic performance. A proper evaluation can help make the correct diagnosis, determine the best treatment, and set him/her on the path to good #Mental #Health and fulfilling life experiences.
