October 6, 2021: Updated Covid Booster Eligibility

The following is an update on eligibility for Covid booster vaccinations through the Calvert County Health Department. Current revisions in eligibility simplify the process and improve access to booster doses against a disease that took the lives of 8 Calvert residents over the last 3 weeks. 86 of the 89 Calvert residents who have died from Covid since March of 2020 were unvaccinated. Since the Delta variant entered Southern Maryland in late July, 10-15 Calvert residents have been hospitalized at any given time as a result of Covid infections. We cannot emphasize strongly enough how important it is for every eligible person to get vaccinated against this disease. Due to the increasing number of breakthrough infections since the introduction of the Delta variant, those eligible for booster doses should consider taking advantage of additional protection for themselves and vulnerable people around them.

A report last week from the CDC of over 2.2 million additional (3rd) doses of Pfizer and Moderna documents excellent safety profiles of both vaccines.
