Mid-Southerners are getting mixed signals on how they should handle the Delta surge 07/30/2021

Mid-Southerners are getting mixed signals on how they should handle the Delta surge

Hey guys:

By now everyone should know that I am "all in" on the COVID-19 vaccination drive. The sooner we can get a majority of individuals vaccinated in the United States with one of the COVID-19 vaccines the sooner we will be able to get it under control. We can diversify and start looking at new ways to eradicate it completely from American soil.

I had a visit with Ms. Caitlin McCarthy from Local (ABC) 24 News (Memphis) yesterday, to discuss the ongoing issues preventing more United States citizens from being vaccinated with one of the COVID-19 vaccines.

I enjoyed the discussion and I hope that the information shared will get people on the fence committed to get the injections as well as motivate as many Americans as possible to get vaccinated with one of the COVID-19 vaccines. Frankly, the COVID-19 vaccines are the best option we have right now to get the COVID-19 virus under control and stop United States citizens from needlessly dying.

The video below captures important points about combating the COVID-19 virus. Thanks, Caitlin McCarthy, and thanks Local News 24 (MEMPHIS).

Be careful, Be safe, Be well.

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — More than 400 new Covid-19 cases were reported in Shelby County Thursday. It's the biggest surge the county has had since February.

However, case surges are happening across the Mid-South and the different directions from politicians and health leaders have many wondering how we're going to get through this.

At the Neshoba County Fair Thursday, Mississippi Governor Tate Reeves called the CDC's mask recommendation for fully vaccinated people "foolish."

"Tuesday's change in the CDC mask guidance is foolish, and it is harmful," Reeves said. "It reeks of political panic, so as to appear that they are in control. It has nothing, let me say that again: It has nothing to do with rational science."

His claim the recommendation has nothing to do with "rational science" has doctors, like Dr. Maurice Skillern, reiterating they do, in fact, work.

"It actually shows a lack of knowledge about the mask," Skillern said. "We use masks when we do surgery. We know they work."

Reeves has said he will not issue a statewide mask mandate for anyone including schools, even with the growing number of children contracting and dying from the virus.

In Arkansas, Governor Asa Hutchinson wants to allow mask mandates in schools. He announced Thursday he's calling for a special session to amend a new law banning mask mandates across the state.

"This is not a debate about mask mandates for those that can make their own decisions and have the means to get vaccinated," Hutchinson said. "This is a discussion about the school environment where schools can make decisions to add to the public health for their own school environment and the children they have a responsibility to protect."

Skillern said this pandemic is about public health, not politics. He added that the first step is getting people vaccinated at a mass vaccine site or their primary care doctor.

"I’m talking right now not as a Republican, not as a Democrat but as an American citizen who has certain knowledge and training," Skillern said.

While the vaccine is not mandatory, Skillern said it's our only solution to ending this.

"People have the freedom to get or not get the vaccine and that’s fine," Skillern said. "The freedom they don’t have is the freedom to infect others."

Man declines COVID-19 vaccine, needs double lung transplant 06/17/2021

Man declines COVID-19 vaccine, needs double lung transplant

Man declines COVID-19 vaccine, needs double lung transplant Joshua Garza, 43, said he passed up opportunities to get vaccinated thinking he did not really need it.

This video was created on Friday April 23rd 2021 at Su Casa Family Ministries where I was on location giving COVID-19 Pfizer vaccine Injections. It was in a Hispanic/Latino area of Memphis where we know vaccine coverage is badly needed. I got to again practice my very broken Spanish but luckily we had volunteer interpreters to help with explaining the specifics. We also had paperwork in Spanish (the Memphis Fire Department went the extra mile to get this paperwork) and that also made the process flow smoother.

I plan on continuing to dig in with the Memphis Fire Department and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) over the next year administering covid 19 vaccines to do my part as a United States citizen by ensuring that one more qualified person is available to give the Injections to those that still need it.

At it again guys 👦. Gave COVID-19 VACCINES injections today at The Healing Center 3885 Tchulahoma Rd, Memphis, TN 38118, USA. We started at 9:00 am today and gave Injections until 6:00 pm with a steady stream of cars coming through. It was a long busy day but the people being vaccinated were all very nice and appreciative.

Again, I am proud to say I was privileged to take care of people of a wide range of cultures, beliefs and sexual orientations. We are in this COVID-19 WAR as a team and we are stronger together than separated.

I have to give a powerful shout-out to the The Memphis Fire Department. They were given the task of getting the vaccinations done for both the City of Memphis and Shelby County and from what I have seen they are doing a great job.

For the next year, I plan to continue to volunteer for the Shelby County Health Department, The Tennessee Medical Readiness Corps, and the City of Memphis.

Be careful, Be safe, Be well.

I had a great time yesterday at Cane Creek Missionary Baptist Church, Memphis, TN, where I Volunteered to give Pfizer Vaccine injection for the Shelby County Health Department. I had a chance to meet some great people from all walks of life. I even ran into a Marine walking through with an OD green cover on his head and we shared a few military stories.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency was on site. We gave over 390 injections on yesterday.

It turns out that giving injection at a church is a good thing. In these places where “God” holds sway, the color of your skin, your sexual orientation, and/or your political affiliation has no bearing on how you are perceived or treated, for God loves all the creature he has created in equal measure and all are welcome in his house 🙏🙏🙏.

I was most pleased with the wide variety of races and countries that I had the privilege of giveing injections too. They did not see me as an African-American but instead they saw me as a caring soul who was there to give help and support through this terrible ordeal (The COVID 19 Virus) we are now facing.

It also turns out that they are accounting for every injection and you have to make an appointment to get an injection at a particular site, so it is not a walk in situation as I thought. For Shelby County, TN go to this link to see when and where you can get scheduled for an injection ( https://covid19.tn.gov/covid-19-vaccines/vaccination-locations/ ).

Those individuals who received their injections on Yesterday at Cane Creek Missionary Baptist Church, are to come back to the same site on 3/20/2021 at the same time that they were scheduled for the first injection to receive their second injection.

As I mentioned before, I am still working through the process to partner with the county, state, and federal agencies to give injections at my clinic ( Physician Associate Interdisciplinary Clinic - Pain-C ) at least 2 times a week for the next year. It appears to be an arduous process and I will keep everyone posted.

Be careful, Be safe, Be well.

Segment 1 of 4 / Compensation and Pension (C & P) / Examination information

This is segment 1 of 4 planned Veterans Administration (VA) compensation and pension (C & P) examination videos. The purpose of the video series is to layout knowledge on injuries that may-have/were obtained during military service. Also, its purpose is also to provide C & P information for Veterans, Veteran family members, and other providers to promote a better understanding of this complex process. It is my hope that by putting out candid information on the C & P process it will motivate/promote Veterans to get involved with the VA and take advantage of their medical rights that were earned through the sacrifices they and their families made in service to our society and in service to this great nation (The United States). This video is titled “In the Beginning” and it covers onboarding into the military and injuries that can be obtained in the process.

This is a Baseline International Pictures (BIP) Production with my son Maurice Azrael Xavier Skillern (MAX; the Main Man) behind the camera and supporting post-production. We want to thank you ahead of time for watching and we pray that the information is helpful.

I am still up grinding tonight with much work to be done. Just wanted to take a moment and send shout-outs and recognize PAIN-C's Board of Directors. These mothers, fathers, sisters, daughters, and brothers are all strong-willed individuals and each one of them have proven to be a positive addition to my life's journey. Most people, I think, would not choose to have such strength so near but that is where I and these individuals differ from most people. Instead of turning such strength against those you care about, each of these individuals understands the truth of strength is the ability to share such strength with those who have proven worthy of such powerful convictions. Such exchanges along with earned trust, in my eyes, is the truth of what the foundation of a family should truly be. Most who know me know I have my moments of "long-wind" so I will cut this short and introduce my board of directors, and I thank them for taking this journey with me.

Great News!!! The Physician Associate Interdisciplinary Clinic (PAIN-C) has been "Officially and Formally" recognized as a Service-Disabled-Veteran-Owned Small Businesses (SDVOSB). This will allow me to directly bid on government contracts and to provide medical training and health care services to and/or by way of government organizations. In the immediate future (working in this direction), I will be working directly with the Veterans Administration Hospital System to perform Compensation and Pension (C & P) examinations for Veterans. In the progressing future, I will be looking at working back towards supplying orthopedic services to veterans and the broader general public.

Also this Friday (7/31/2020) at 8:00 pm I will be giving a class (here on Facebook and by way of youtube) covering military veteran service-connection for congenital abnormalities secondary to surgical intervention while on active duty. This is an issue that I have come across repeatedly and I will be addressing the issue and advising veterans on how to submit appropriate worded claims to assist them in getting service-connected for said surgery.

Please reach out to all of the veterans that you know, give them the above date and time, to tune into the Physician Associate Interdisciplinary Clinic (PAIN-C) page (https://www.facebook.com/PAINCORG/ ) to gain access to this valuable information. While there, tell them to like the page to continue to have access to information on veteran health care issues. My plan is to post/give at least one class a week on veteran issues and compensation and pension concerns. Be careful, Be safe, Be Well.
