In a new Vanderbilt Health video, Chief Epidemiologist Tom Talbot, MD, answers the top three frequently asked questions about COVID-19 booster shots:
- What is a booster dose of the COVID-19 vaccine?
- Why is it important to get a booster shot?
- Do I need a booster if I've already had COVID-19 infection?
Watch the video below, and please share with your employees and their families.
Also, new research from Vanderbilt and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows that a third (“booster”) dose of an mRNA COVID-19 vaccine significantly improves protection against omicron hospitalization—up to 86%.
