Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Booster doses of the coronavirus vaccine that target today's most common omicron strain are being rolled out across the country CDC director doctor Rochelle Walensky says the number of virus deaths around the country is still too high And in my mind far too high for a vaccine preventable disease White House coronavirus response coordinator doctor Ashish jha says the virus has been evolving while the vaccine remains the same But now we have a vaccine that matches the dominant strain out there The hope is the modified boosters will ease in other winter surge The new doses are available around the same time people get flu shots The good news is you can get both your flu shot and COVID shot at the same time It's actually a good idea I really believe this is why God gave us two arms One for the flu shot and the other one for the COVID shot Jaw says the coronavirus will likely be with us for the rest of our lives Ed Donahue Washington
