Amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, getting vaccinated and staying updated with boosters is crucial. Vaccines, thoroughly tested and monitored for safety, are our best defense against severe COVID-19 illness. The CDC recommends everyone 6 years and older get vaccinated, with resources available to help find vaccination sites near you.
Staying up to date also includes receiving booster shots, which enhance protection against the virus, particularly against new variants. Updated Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna vaccines are recommended for everyone 6 years and older. Additional doses may be necessary for those aged 65 and older, and individuals who are moderately or severely immunocompromised.
Vaccination isn’t just a personal decision—it’s a collective effort to curb the pandemic. We strongly urge everyone to learn more about vaccines and boosters on the CDC’s website, and to get vaccinated as soon as possible. Each shot counts towards saving lives and restoring normalcy.
