COVID-19 vaccine boosters help remind your body and reinforce the protection you have from earlier vaccination. Adults can now get a booster with more flexibility – meaning you can choose to mix between vaccines or match what you had before in many cases. UPMC Northwest encourages patients with questions about their eligibility for a booster or the vaccine in general to contact their primary care physician, pediatrician or obstetrician. “If you have questions, turn to an expert,” UPMC Northwest President Brian Durniok said. “We are here to explain the data and science. We want to share the facts and give you accurate information so that you are empowered to make your own, informed decisions.”
