Hello + welcome to this tiny space on the internet! I created this blog (+ changed the name twice since) 14 years ago as a creative outlet from my career in the emergency room as a PA. After spending the past 7 (or so) years on social media outlets, I have decided to delete all of the ones associated with this blog and get back to the heart of blogging.

Today’s guest, Dr. Krupa Playforth, answers questions surrounding a current hot topic: Children and the Covid-19 vaccine. Given the recent announcement of the Pfizer vaccine for 5-12 year olds, I have been getting many questions on this subject. For that reason, we are doing a rapid Q&A session with Dr. Playforth to answer your questions.
The information she provides is truly invaluable because as she mentions, children deserve to have play dates and experience “normal” life again.
