The global pandemic gives new appreciation for World Health Day, because good health is not something to take for granted. 

The Doctors want to honor all the people who have been on the frontlines making sure those that are sick  get treatment, and also, to all those who are racing to get vaccinations to eligible people. While the pandemic is not over, and globally we have a long way to go to get vaccines administered to all, we want to remind people that if you are eligible to get your vaccine, you should do so. And please do keep social distancing, washing your hands and wearing a mask

As the pandemic has served to remind us, part of being human is getting sick. When you are not well, you should consult your doctor about the best course of treatment. While your medicine cabinet might be well stocked with over the counter pain medications and cold, cough, and allergy medications, The Doctors have rounded up some items that might not currently be in your medicine cabinet but probably should be.
