A recent report from the state of Washington suggests the prevalence in the community is doubling every 2-3 days, which is what is being seen in Africa and Europe. Without a booster, the primary COVID-19 series only provides about 30% protection against Omicron. With a booster, after 10 days, the protection increases to about 75%.  Linked below is important data that highlights the importance of getting residents and staff vaccinated with the booster in the next few weeks. If you have not done so already, please contact your pharmacy partner to schedule a booster clinic as soon as possible.
