Important Information Regarding COVID-19 Booster Shots

Your initial vaccination offers strong protection against the COVID-19 virus, and are working well to prevent severe illness, hospitalization, and death, even against the widely circulating Delta variant. However, public health experts are starting to see reduced protection, especially among certain populations, against mild and moderate disease. For certain people at higher risk of developing COVID-19, booster shots are now recommended by The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
