I’m sure we’ve all heard the talks of a booster shot. As this comes down the wire, we want to provide you with some information. The booster shot is highly recommended 8 months after the 2nd dose. Residents who received their vaccine with RCH during the first two clinics (January 5 and January 26) are due for a booster by end of September. 

 According to data from the State – the efficacy rate of the vaccine received back in January has dropped from 94-95% to 53.1% as of June. With that said, we strongly encourage all our residents and staff who are eligible, to get the booster shot to increase their efficacy rate and protection against the virus.

 Please watch out for the announcement on the clinic day(s) for the Covid-19 vaccine booster to be done at RCH.
