Patient shuns COVID-19 vaccine, then changes mind after hospitalization

Saul Torres considers himself lucky to be alive after contracting COVID-19 and suffering from a rare neurological condition. From his hospital bed on the 14th floor of UC Davis Medical Center, Torres, a father of two small children, said he lamented not getting the COVID-19 vaccine. His doctors believe it could have prevented Torres’ hospitalization for Guillain-Barré syndrome, an autoimmune disorder triggered by serious viral and bacterial infections.

More options than ever for at-home and community COVID-19 tests

The initial COVID-19 outbreak last year sent labs and health systems across the country rushing to create tests for the novel virus. Now, more than a year and a half into the pandemic, people can get drive-through COVID-19 testing at community sites and drugstores and even order antigen tests from Amazon to take at home. Over-the-counter rapid antigen tests for COVID-19 have become very popular.

But which tests should you use and when? And if you are vaccinated, do you need to be testing at all? Two UC Davis Health experts offer some updates and advice.
