LEARN HOW YOUR BREATHING AND SLEEPING PATTERNS MAY BE AFFECTING OUR HEALTH. Breathing and Sleep are several factors that may improve our overall health. When we don’t have good sleep, you may be placing your overall health at risk. Sleep and breathing disorders can be seen in 79% of adults with neuromuscular diseases and respiratory muscle weakness. Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) Sleep Bruxism Extreme forces can be generated by the jaws during clenching or grinding during sleep which can result in the overuse of the jaw muscles - resulting in morning jaw pain or fatigue and jaw dysfunction. Find out if you have any of these issues and are looking for a solution! https://www.taslconsultants.com/post/is-your-health-being-affected?fbclid=IwAR1icz-EQ3m2dJSrKHVyho5A-_sw8C4yDoFtZEy6tw1LK6KS3sBYuLNXh5w #breathing #breathingexercises #BREATHINGYOUIN #breathingproblems #breathingspace #breathinglife #breathingtechniques #breathingquality #breathingforbusiness #breathingtreatment #breathingiskeytolife #breathingfire #BreathingConsciousMovement #breathingroom #breathingmagic #breathingmeditation #breathingexercise #breathinghard #breathingcity #breathinghouse #breathingproblem #breathingsilence #breathingtechnique #breathingview #breathingyoga #breathingagain #breathingformendes #breathingbjj #breathingthesameair #breathingseismograph #texas #TexasForever #texasholdem #texasbbq #texaswedding #texasblogger #texasmusic #TexasTech #TexasSpeed #texashillcountry #TexasHealth #TexasHealthAlliance #TexasHealthFortWorth #TexasHealthResources #TexasMedicalCenter #texasmedicalcannabis #HoustonHealth #houstonhealthcare #HoustonHealthAdvocacy #HoustonHealthCoach #houstonhealthy #Houstonhealthyhair #houstonmedicalcenter #houstonprofessionals
My sister needs her 2nd dose of Moderna. She got her first dose through your program on March 13th. She's been trying to get her 2nd dose scheduled and can't. She has sent emails and left phone messages. No one has returned either.
my name is ishrat saleem, dob 07/14/2021 i was given the first doze of vaccine on feb.28 with NO date of second dose. all my efforts to contact covit hotline at 832-393-4220 thru waiting hours or leaving messeges to know the date of second doze bear no result. will appreciate your forwarding my this messege to concerned department to provide the information i require. thank you.
I lost a few people I cared about to covid 19. Out of respect for them I’ll continue to mask up and social distance.
Dr. Hasan Gokal should be commended for dispensing COVID vaccine rather than flushing it. Something is drastically wrong with our society when people who try to do the morally right thing gets fired. One has to wonder if he was an old white guy with a name like Lee, or Jackson, would he have been treated like a criminal and dismissed from his job.
I believe someone should directly address the group of people who are due for their second shots. From what I can tell no one is getting text messages to schedule the second shot. After waiting on hold for an hour to speak to someone regarding the scheduling I was told the text is coming. Still no text. I understand that it is hectic out there, but one message along with a concrete plan would put a lot of minds at ease.
Shout out and much thanks to a very sweet phone agent named Nicolette taking the COVID vaccine phone calls. She was super sweet and awesome helping me with my grandma's 2nd vaccine after being disconnected from one agent and the million follow up calls all dropping after 20 to 40 minutes on hold each time. AND she answered like 1 minute till closing time! Thank you thank you thank you! She deserves a bonus!
My parents are in their 80's and received their first dose on January 8th. They have not been contacted yet. Please email me at [email protected] to set up their second dose appointment.
My parents are within 48 hours and have not yet been contacted. I have been on hold for over an hour calling the COVID hotline number. Please email me at [email protected].
We have been on hold and disconnected twice this morning concerning our 2nd vaccine appt. My mom cannot access a link in a text message as she only has talk and text on an old flip phone so we cannot schedule her appointment. Someone please reach out. We were due for our vaccines today.
How do you create a password for the vaccine appointment site? When I click on the link to sign up for a vaccine I am taken to a survey site that requires a password (since I've never been to this site I assume it wants me to create a password, not enter an existing one). There are no guidelines for what is required in the password (capitals? lower case? numbers? special characters? length?) but all passwords seem to be invalid. So frustrating.
