COVID-19 remains present in Sint Maarten, and therefore it is very important to get your booster as people are still falling ill.
In order for the vaccine to be relevant and up-to-date and protect you from serious disease, Pfizer has come out with the bivalent COVID-19 vaccine booster dose.
These are called bivalent COVID-19 vaccines because they contain these two components. The bivalent COVID-19 vaccines may also be referred to as “updated” COVID-19 vaccines booster dose.
As the virus changes and your immunity naturally decreases over time, you may lose some of that protection, and therefore it is very important for you to get the latest booster.
The booster jab should keep any symptoms mild and prevent you from ending up in the hospital.
COVID-19 vaccines continue to help protect against severe illness, hospitalization, and death from COVID-19 disease.
