Wondering if you need a booster? CDC added a new interactive tool to its COVID-19 web resources for the public, to help users identify whether they need to receive a booster dose of COVID-19 vaccine. The “COVID-19 Vaccine Boosters” tool asks a series of simple questions about age, immunocompromise, number and type of previous doses of COVID-19 vaccines, and how long ago they received the most recent vaccination. From these answers, the tool reports whether a first or second booster dose may be beneficial and presents considerations for when to receive it. https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/vaccines/booster-shot.html

Volunteer Transportation Center: Call 315-788-0422 to schedule a ride to your vaccine appointment.
