    Wayne County to offer COVID-19 booster shots starting Monday. Here’s what to know

    Wayne County will begin offering booster shots of the Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines on Monday as the nation grapples with the delta variant.

    A booster shot for the vaccines has gained attention in recent months as a further protectant against the virus, especially as new variants create uncertainty about the vaccines’ long-term efficacy. While the U.S. is expected to recommend Americans get a booster shot eight months after their second dose, immunocompromised Wayne County residents are already cleared to get one at least 28 days after their second shot. 

    “We encourage residents to consult their doctor or other medical provider about whether they should receive a booster,” said Melita Jordan, director of the Wayne County Department of Health, Human and Veterans Services, in a statement. “This booster will help protect immunocompromised individuals from the virus especially as the more contagious Delta variant continues to spread.”
