Talking Points From Dr. Colleen Cira on the
Added Mental Health Benefit to Getting the Vaccine:
- COVID has put anyone who takes it seriously in a state of chronic nervous system dysregulation. Essentially, our nervous system serves to keep us safe. So whenever we experience something as threatening or dangerous, our stress response goes off. This is essential when we are experiencing acute and imminent danger, but when our nervous system never has a chance to turn off and reset—like in the middle of a global pandemic spanning 18+ months—it can wreak havoc on our minds, bodies, and souls.
