The White House’s infectious disease leaders today urged everyone who is not caught up on their COVID-19 vaccines to make an appointment ahead of the winter holidays.
With COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations rising, the White House hosted a virtual town hall this morning about the importance of getting vaccinated.
“As we’ve seen waning immunity against COVID, getting that updated, bivalent vaccine is the single most important thing you can do to make sure your immunity is up to date and that you can fight the virus that’s out there,” said Dr. Ashish K. Jha, the White House’s COVID-19 response coordinator.
