COVID cases are climbing again, but booster rates across the country are not.

Despite the additional layer of defense boosters provide against severe illness and death, many people have been slow to get the extra protection. The good news is any vaccinated person age 5 years or older is now eligible to get boosted. Boosters can also extend protection from the virus including from variants that may be more contagious or cause more severe illness.

COVID boosters can help protect against the main variants of the disease, and are safe to get along with your yearly flu shot or any other routine vaccines.
