Vaccination Booking Reminders
Getting vaccinated with three doses provides good protection against symptoms and very good protection against serious disease requiring hospitalization. The strength of protection may decrease after several months. So all people 60 and older are encouraged to get a fourth dose of the vaccine. This is the age-group that has higher rates of hospitalization and death because of underlying health conditions that make it a challenge to cope with COVID infection.
