OMICRON COVID-19 Variant
The CDC announced that the Omicron variant has now become dominant in the United States. Omicron is the most contagious virus we have ever seen. COVID-19 vaccination is by far our most powerful weapon in the fight against all COVID-19 variants. Preventing serious COVID-19 disease is critically important to protect our highly stressed hospitals. Please get vaccinated against COVID-19 as soon as possible. If you are vaccinated, and eligible for a booster dose, please get the booster dose as soon as possible.
