The bad news, omicron is coming — and it appears to be even more transmissible than delta.
The good news is, booster shots provide some strong protection and you can get one. What you need to know:
The boosters are free. (I thought most people know this already, but apparently not.)
Everyone 18 and older should get one.
When? If you received a Pfizer or Moderna vaccine, six months after your last shot. If you got the J&J, at least two months after the shot. And yes, you can mix and match boosters. If you got Pfizer, you can get a Moderna booster.
If you already got the booster, do your best to help the people you know get them, too. A lot of people postpone getting the booster because they’re not sure of the process — and then it might be too late.
*By the way, I see that Rite Aid’s website says they take walk-ins from 2 to 3 pm.
