The COVID-19 vaccines continue to be highly effective in reducing risk of severe disease, hospitalization, and death, including against the Delta variant. CDC data show that in August 2021, the risk of dying from COVID-19 in the U.S. was more than 11 times greater for unvaccinated people than for fully vaccinated people. However, scientists are starting to see reduced protection against mild and moderate disease, especially among certain populations. This is the reason for the new booster dose guidance.
It is critically important that those who haven't yet gotten vaccinated do so as soon as possible.
COVID-19 vaccines continue to be widely available from local providers and pharmacies. Initial vaccine doses of all three vaccines and boosters are available through the Health Department. See Health Department clinic details here.
