我在急症室工作了35年,2017年到達退休年齡,退休後一直在不同的大學擔任客席講師的工作。最近香港推行全民疫苗接種計劃,香港護理專科學院邀請我到社區疫苗接種中心擔任疫苗醫生,可以再次重臨前線照顧有需要人士,這是一件既富意義又令我興奮的事。這段時間在疫苗中心遇到不同市民,我覺得當中有些經驗值得在這裡分享,希望藉此讓公眾掌握更多接種疫苗的相關資訊,並釋除大家心中的一些疑慮。   個案1: 暈針 原來有不少接種者都會出現「暈針」情況, 他們在接種疫苗後5-10鐘內面色變得蒼白、脈搏和血壓下降、手腳冰冷出汗、並且失去知覺暈倒,而這並不是弱不禁風的人的專利,事實上不論種族、年齡、高矮肥瘦或是身體強弱都有機會「暈針」,而且當中還有一個特別現象 —暈針似是有傳染性,當一個接種者看見另一接種者暈倒,自己也很有可能接著暈倒,然後接種中心內就會看到有好幾位接種者接連暈倒,若不了解這個現象而身處現場的話很可能會被嚇倒。其實要預防「暈針」的處理方法很簡單,我通常會讓容易暈針的接種者躺在輪床上接種,然後躺著休息15分鐘,便可以預防暈針的情況了。如果大家擔心自己或身邊的人「暈針」,可以考慮要求疫苗中心提供這個安排。   個案2: 新冠狀病毒康復者

麥嘉慧,科學人      有記性的免疫系統   有時候我們會用「打敗仗」來形容身體被病菌入侵而病倒了,可幸是身體會在這次敗仗中獲得免疫力。即是說,痊癒後的身體並不會再被同一種病菌入侵。接種疫苗,就如為身體的免疫系統做了一次軍事演習,讓它記住針對某病菌(抗原)的防禦 ,並刺激抗體產生,從而獲得免疫力。以後若真的有病菌試圖入侵身體時,免疫系統就可以迅速作出反應,將病菌擊退。

陳婉玲 (Elaine Chan)   很多時候,災難都是突如其來,不可預計的。在沒有心理準備及防災措施下,災難一旦發生,便會驚惶失措,加劇傷害和損失。所以,我們應有備無患,即使發生突發事故,也能減低受影響的程度及損失。如你同意上述說法,並有防災的準備,為災難預早作打算,那便恭喜你,你是一個有備災意識及計劃的人,因為有所防備,相信在遇到事故時,便能更從容不迫地應對。   今年2月,美國德克薩斯州地區受暴風雪吹襲,帶來極度嚴寒的天氣,路面結冰,道路封閉,氣溫驟降導致用電量暴增,使德克薩斯等南部州份電力不勝負荷,導致共400萬民居電力中斷接近一個月,冰凍天氣亦令供水系統大受影響,總統拜登更一度宣布德克薩斯州進入「重大災難」狀態,持續的冰凍天氣更引致超過70人死亡;市民在天寒地凍的情況下,只好使用原始的方法,生火取暖,又將冰雪融為水來煮沸飲用,以渡過嚴寒。
