As the Omicron variant spreads, Medical Center providers warn that it’s the Delta variant that’s still rampant in the state. The best protection against both? Getting both the COVID-19 immunization plus the booster.
The oldest fundraising event of Friends of Children’s Hospital, BankPlus Presents Light A Light brought a treelighting, visits with Santa and Ballet Mississippi performances to Children’s of Mississippi patients Tuesday. Hosted for the first time at the Kathy and Joe Sanderson Tower, the event included the Sandersons’ daughters, Katie Creath and Emily Whitaker, lighting the hospital’s Christmas tree.
We don’t yet know how Omicron will shape the COVID-19 pandemic, but the variant’s mutations, origins and performance against Delta have scientists watching it closely. That includes UMMC’s Molecular and Genomics Core Facility, which is ready to help track Omicron in Mississippi.
When minor medical woes such as rashes or allergies require quick and safe treatment, the Medical Center’s UMMC 2 You offers both convenience and personal care. A telehealth urgent care service, UMMC 2 You is available to any Mississippi resident with WiFi capability – and with flu season under way, it’s a great way to be seen by a provider without having to leave home.
Several interesting events are scheduled for the upcoming week at the Medical Center.
