Covid virus

Vaccination is our principal defense against Covid-19. And yet, the vaccines’ effectiveness wanes over time, meaning that even vaccinated people who haven’t received a shot in awhile may not be well-protected against serious infections.

Only 36% of American seniors — and just 16% of the population 18 and older — have received the updated booster shot that became available in September.

Why it matters: 

The big picture: All of the data that’s come out over the last two years says that the vaccines are effective. The problem is twofold: the effectiveness changed as the virus evolved, and it also fades if you haven’t had your last shot in a while.

  • The lesson is that the vaccines work, getting a booster shot is important — especially for older, vulnerable people — and people who haven’t received a shot recently are at significantly higher risk than if they had.
  • We urge everyone to stay boosted — if only out of consideration for our fellow dancers!
