Pfizer and Moderna vaccines may provide years of protection from COVID-19

A new small-scale study suggests that mRNA vaccines against COVID-19 may offer long-term protection, as long as the virus does not evolve significantly.

The Pfizer / BioNtech and vaccine, as well as the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine, will likely provide protection against the coronavirus for several years, if it does not evolve significantly, a small new study suggests.

The level of protection depends on several factors, for example: how much and how quickly the virus evolves, as well as on how robust different types of vaccines are in spurring a lasting immune response. The Pfizer / BioNTech and the Moderna vaccines, utilize a new platform known as messenger RNA (mRNA) to train the human immune system to fight against SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19.

The health benefits of Vitamin B12

A recent article in the Chicago Tribune summarizes the importance of Vitamin B12, as well as its benefits.

Cobalamin, also known as vitamin B12, is something that the human body needs but cannot produce on its own. Humans get it from supplements or from certain foods.

Vitamin B12 is needed for nerve cell function, red blood cell production, and DNA synthesis. Vitamin B-12 is essential to our nervous system, as it prevents the loss of neurons which is linked to memory loss with age. People with Vitamin B12 deficiency were more likely to develop dementia.

Furthermore, Vitamin B12 is good for the bones. Adequate vitamin B12 levels may reduce bone density issues, such as osteoporosis. As a person gets older, her / his bones are more likely to lose strength, so Vitamin B12 may help. This correlation is particularly true for women, who are more prone to bone loss with age.

Additionally, Vitamin B12 plays a part in preventing heart disease, as it helps decrease homocysteine in the blood.

Finally, Vitamin B12 works with red blood cells in our body to prevent anemia, a condition that can cause fatigue, weakness and even hospitalization and death if left untreated. Anemia happens when red blood cells become vitamin B12 deficient and physically deformed.

In her concierge medicine office in Juno Beach, Florida, Dr. Yael Vidal emphasizes to patients who seek a Concierge Doctor in Jupiter regarding the importance of Vitamin B12 in their diet and lifestyle. As described above, Vitamin B-12 may assist in preventing various diseases and medical conditions, and its role in proper health may be even greater for older patients.
