Why Are Boosters Important?

Our health care workers have stood at the frontline against COVID-19 for the past two years. Their dedication during this global pandemic has been remarkable. They have shown their outstanding commitment in so many different ways, such as adopting enhanced infection prevention and control measures, explaining the evolving COVID-19 protocols to patients, residents, and family members, and promptly receiving their full COVID-19 vaccine series.

The most recent protection measure, to further minimize the spread of the virus in our health care settings, is ensuring that a booster dose of the COVID-19 vaccine is accessible to every health care worker six months after their second dose.

What is a booster dose and why should HCWs get one?   Island Health provides helpful information about boosters in this recent bulletin.  Get the details here:
