The currently available COVID-19 vaccines protect against severe illness, hospitalizations, and deaths due to the Omicron variant. Breakthrough infections in people who are fully vaccinated may occur, but most vaccinated individuals have reported mild or no symptoms from the Omicron variant. 

Booster shots are more important now than ever. They are free and can be obtained at your local pharmacy, health care provider, and at pop-ups across the country. If you need help finding an appointment, reach out to our team at Mira!
