Others believe he was performing weddings for the Christians that were forbidden to marry. Still, others tell that there was romance in his story, claiming he signed his

For any new parent, the first time your baby starts to feel under the weather, it’s a scary time. Are they just reacting to a new food, are they experiencing allergies for the first time, are they just teething, or are they COVID or RSV?

“It’s the holiday season, so hoop-de-do and dickory dock, and don’t forget to hang up your sock.” The holiday season is a joyous time of giving and family gatherings.

Every year from around November to March, doctors see a rise in cases of RSV, respiratory syncytial virus, in young children. Although most cases of RSV are mild, and it is believed that all children under two years have experienced the virus at least once, the illness still hospitalizes thousands each year (some studies show as many as 60,000 hospitalizations each year).   RSV affects small children by creating a mucus buildup in the lungs. This blockage can restrict oxygen intake. In some cases, infants can also experience pneumonia related to RSV and fail to eat, which will require admittance into a

In 2004, the American Pharmacists Association launched a campaign throughout the month of October to celebrate the invaluable work done by pharmacists. Today, each October is still recognized as American Pharmacists Month, and pharmacists remain a valuable part of our world, especially considering their contribution during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Louisiana Department of Health requires that all students have their vaccines, and the schools must submit a report showing what percentages of the student body has received the proper vaccines. Although parents can write to the school and exempt their child from immunizations, vaccines are essential for children and young adults. Scientists have found vaccines to prevent more than 20 life-threatening diseases and have prevented 3.5 to 5 million deaths every year by administering these vaccines. Additionally, vaccines are imperative
