On November 29, CDC strengthened its recommendations on who should aim to complete a booster dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. This new recommendation urges that everyone ages 18 and older should receive a booster at least 6 months post completion of a 2-dose regimen, or 2 months post a single dose inoculation.
With the emergence of the Omicron variant, the importance of vaccination, and the use of boosters, as a prevention method is even more important. CDC Director, Dr. Rochelle Walensky also encouraged those who are unvaccinated to change that as soon as possible. Dr. Walensky also highlighted the importance of getting tested should you experience symptoms.
