COVID-19 vaccines: Why get a booster dose?



In a living room, there is an adult with their sleeve rolled up.

Narration: COVID-19 vaccines have helped protect us.

Narration: Over time, the antibodies created after vaccination have been found to decrease.

There is a zoom in on the adult’s arm and there are a few animated antibodies moving as if they are going through the bloodstream.

Narration: While we still have good protection against severe illness, a booster dose produces more antibodies that can help to strengthen our immune response.

Many more antibodies start to appear.

Narration: Learn more and book your booster dose.
