I used to be happy to see the Northampton Board of Well being lastly require COVID vaccinations beginning Jan. 17 for admission to the Senior Middle. One in 100 individuals over the age of 65 have died on account of COVID-19. Now omicron is on the best way, spreads two occasions quicker and is 4 occasions extra transmissible than the delta pressure. Though breakthrough infections happen, receiving a booster COVID vaccination doubles vaccine effectiveness and will increase safety from extreme illness to over 80%. As omicron surges, the Board of Well being ought to moreover mandate booster vaccinations for these eligible to obtain them who want to use the Senior Middle.
Let’s not be too little, too late.
