Cleveland Clinic: Seniors need to get their second booster shot against COVID-19-and why some ‘adults’ are ‘Two Stupid’ to do so:
Some older adults have yet to get their second booster shot against COVID-19, which is causing some concern for health officials and the CDC.
Dr. Ardeshir Hashimi, section chief of geriatric medicine for Cleveland Clinic says there are two primary reasons for this: awareness and access.
Hashimi adds that older adults don’t have as strong of an immune system and new variants of the virus continue to surface.
(No one knows what that ‘Pumpkin Magic’ number of antibodies is to prevent one from contracting COVID-19).
In terms of side effects, Hashimi says the side effects of the second booster are very similar to those of the first.
In addition, Hashimi recommends those who may be vulnerable to wear a mask and practice social distancing whenever possible while in public, not just to prevent COVID-19, but other viruses too.
Hashimi encourages younger and more technologically adept family members help those with accessibility issues in order for them to schedule their second booster.
(Perhaps, Nurse Lavenderhuffer to the rescue?)
