Dr. Jyl Radwell joined the INLIV team of family physicians in April 2018, after working around the province and far beyond!

A lifelong adventurer, Dr. Jyl has woven her love of medicine and travel together, working as a physician in Cochrane, Olds, and throughout rural Alberta, as well as many years in Yellowknife and rural areas of the Northwest Territories, Nunavut. She’s even worked as far away as Taupo, New Zealand, where she spent six months on locum.

Shingles and the new vaccine

Shingles and the new vaccine

By Dr. Ralph Strother | Medical Doctor | INcare | HEALTH

It often starts as an unusual pain, maybe some tingling… and then a rash sets in. Shingles! While it may be common (almost one in three Canadians may be affected by shingles), it can be quite painful. And, too often, some fail to realize that the pain from shingles can last for months – long after the rash has healed.

As a physician, I have been watching Shingrix – the newest vaccine against shingles – through the late Phase III trials and approval. Interestingly, Canada was the first country to approve the new vaccine, and our physician team here at INLIV had it on order as soon as the announcement of its approval for use in Canada in October 2017.

It seems like such a good idea: this year, your resolution is to get fit and stick to it! You’re determined, you’re ready, and you head to the gym in January with a playlist full of upbeat tunes and a new stick of deodorant. But before you know it, your gym bag and fitness goals are gathering dust under the couch.
