Mental Health Awareness and Vaccination – Mind and Mental 2

Fig 01- A tree with purple flowers.

Thank you so much for commenting and sharing your thoughts related to my post about Mental Illness.

I appreciate it.

We are still in May, the awareness of mental health month, so it is a good moment to be aware about our daily living activities and behaviors that affect our mental health.

Prolonged isolation and prolonged restricted activities can lead to discomfort and depression.

Over a year we feel like live in the box, and now we can take a little “fresh air” since more people have been vaccinated.

Louisiana is less number of percentage of vaccination. In Louisiana, the number of people fully vaccinated is 1,438,154, and the percentage of population fully vaccinated is 30.94%.

The rank of Louisiana from 51 states is 48/51. The highest percentage of its population fully vaccinated against COVID-19 is Vermont, 54%.

On May 15, Governor Bell Edward mentioned, “Following the new CDC guidance and in consultation with the LDH, I have revised the current proclamation to give anyone who is fully vaccinated the option to no longer wear a mask while indoors in most places.”

But the restrictions are still the same in some places, such in government buildings and hospitals, wearing mask mandatory and distance.

Most Baton Rouge residents still wear mask even though in the places that mask is not mandatory anymore and the outdoors.

Governor Bell Edward brought up, “A growing number of studies on the COVID vaccines have shown the following:

-More than 90% effective in real-world settings at preventing mild and severe disease, hospitalization, and death.
-Effective against the variants currently circulating in the country and state.
-Those who are vaccinated are less likely to spread the virus.”

At the last, if prolonged isolation and prolonged restricted activities can lead to discomfort and depression, better get COVID vaccination. It might prevent our depression; vaccinated persons have more options for their life.

  4. I am so grateful for the vaccine. We got the Pfizer and I'm hearing that it works for longer than we thought. Thank goodness.
    I know several people who deal with mental health difficulties. It's so very hard.

  8. I felt such a sense of relief after my husband and I were fully vaccinated. We are living again, going places, eating out, etc. without worry now.

  9. I live in Nebraska. In some ways we are back to normal..yet, some of us wear a mask while working. But I see less and less mask wearing these days. Still there are those who won't get the vaccine. Like a co-worker who is certain she would be allergic to it.

  10. Thanks for the update, we are eagerly awaiting our 2nd shots in Canada

  11. Governor BEL Edward?
    Well, keep in mind that the vaccines are first of all, the toy of the politicians who cannot cope with mass opposition to restrictions, and must show they do something about the virus.
    Anyway, go on wearing the mask, at least till the end of the year!

  12. As doenças mentais são das doenças mais duras que existem. Talvez não seja igual às doenças cancerígenas em que as pessoas sofrem e muito. Mas uma pessoas entrar em demência, pode viver muitos anos. Não conhecer os filhos, netos/as, família, é muito duro e triste. Não para os doentes, mas para quem consigo priva.

    Um domingo feliz … abraço

  26. It's awesome you have so many people vaccinated! that's sure to make people feel happier as they can get out more and do more things without worries about catching the virus, when you have so many cases.

    Hope you had a good weekend :)

  27. Mental health is of the utmost importance, and people should do whatever they can to maintain their balance and well-being. As always, thanks so much for calling attention to this issue!

  28. Our mask mandate has also been removed. Though private businesses of course have the right to request masks be worn inside their business. I am still wearing mine and it is nice to see many others are also still wearing their masks as well.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I agree. Having the vaccination really allows people more safe contact and that's key to easing depression. I'll still wear my mask, even though I'm vaccinated and happy others are as well. But at least I feel OK being "out there."
