Omicron Variant: What you need to know
CDC expects that anyone with Omicron infection can spread the virus to others, even if they are vaccinated or don’t have symptoms. Current vaccines are expected to protect against severe illness, hospitalizations, and deaths due to infection with the Omicron variant. However, infections in people who are fully vaccinated are likely to occur. The recent emergence of Omicron further emphasizes the importance of vaccination and boosters.
Get Active
Losing weight with video games? Yes, exergaming is playing video games or other forms of digital activities that require you to exercise or be physically active. Often, players use their full bodies while exergaming—burning calories while having fun.
Weight Loss Services
Vista’s Weight Management Options provide comprehensive, non-surgical weight loss programs that address the medical, nutritional, behavioral and emotional changes necessary to attain significant and long-lasting success.

Vista also has an accredited bariatric surgery program; if you have a BMI of 35 or more you may be a candidate for the program. Patients who elect bariatric surgery not only lose a significant amount of weight but also experience relief from obesity-related conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, arthritis, reflux and sleep apnea.
Getting Enough Vitamin D
The easiest way to get vitamin D is by soaking up a little sunshine. In colder months, this becomes more challenging as we may spend less time outdoors. Add these Vitamin D foods to your diet.
  • Egg yolks
  • Fish - trout, salmon & tuna
  • Cows milk or plant based milk
  • Fortified OJ
  • Mushrooms
