COVID-19 Delta Variant Booster Shot Likely Needed to Ensure Continued Protection in Las Vegas

July 27, 2021

Will you need a booster shot to protect against new coronavirus strains?

Reports by major news outlets indicate that the elderly and those with compromised immune systems will likely need a booster shot to help provide continued protection against new coronavirus variants.

According to Fortune, "The consensus around whether or not COVID vaccine booster shots are necessary—and who should be prioritized to get them and when—is quickly shifting as the COVID Delta variant cases fuel a surge in new infections across the U.S. Biden administration officials now believe that certain Americans, especially the elderly and those with compromised immune systems, will likely need a booster shot of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines to ensure continued protection against coronavirus strains of all stripes."

The concern is that some vaccinated people may contract a Delta variant case that causes some COVID-related symptoms and potentially spread the virus in under-vaccinated regions.
