COVID-19: A Primary Care Doctor’s Perspective

Your primary care provider is often the first person you call when you’re sick and the physician who helps manage your overall health. During the COVID-19 pandemic, family doctors are pulling double duty, as they strive to strike a balance between providing safe care in-person and virtually. In this podcast, Russell Bird, MD, a Louisville doctor specializing in family medicine, offers his unique perspective to help us make sense of the pandemic. He explains the phased approach to vaccine administration and describes those who are most at risk for becoming infected with the virus. In addition, he talks prevention, clears up common misconceptions about the coronavirus, and emphasizes the importance of caring for our mental health.
