Let's talk boosters! First off, booster shots can be an important tool in helping build your immunity against COVID-19. If you received your initial vaccine series of either Pfizer or Moderna or one dose of Johnson & Johnson, kudos to you! You took the first step in protecting yourself against COVID-19.

Now that we know more about the virus and its variants though, booster shots are recommended to help further your protection. Let's break it down. When you received your first dose(s) of the vaccine, your body worked hard to produce antibodies that could protect you from the virus and prevent you from becoming severely ill or hospitalized with COVID-19.
