THE STATE DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC HEALTH IS JOINING THE F-D-A IN RECOMMENDING COVID-19 BOOSTER SHOTS FOR ALL ADULTS. 

 

THERE'S BEEN A 25 PERCENT INCREASE IN NEW CASES OVER THE PAST WEEK IN ILLINOIS, AND ALL BUT EIGHT COUNTIES ARE STILL CONSIDERED AT HIGH RISK FOR TRANSMISSION OF THE VIRUS SAYS PUBLIC HEALTH DIRECTOR DOCTOR NGOZI EZIKE.

 

 

WITH THAT IN MIND, IT'S A GOOD IDEA TO GET THE EXTRA PROTECTION.

 

 

EZIKE SAYS THOSE 18 AND OVER SHOULD GET THE BOOSTER SIX MONTHS AFTER THE PFIZER OR MODERNA SHOTS AND TWO MONTHS AFTER THE JOHNSON AND JOHNSON VACCINE. IT SHOULD BE AVAILABLE AT YOUR LOCAL HEALTH DEPARTMENT, PHARMACY, AND DOCTOR'S OFFICE.
