Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, the recommendations for keeping ourselves protected have evolved.
One of the latest guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) focuses on immunocompromised people who received a third dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna vaccine.
It is now recommended that these individuals receive a booster shot five months after getting their third primary dose. This will help maintain their level of protection, even as the omicron variant becomes more prevalent in the U.S.
