Protect loved ones from COVID-19
Friday, October 29, 2021
Getting vaccinated is vital for your health. However, did you know that even if you are vaccinated, you can still get and spread the COVID-19 virus without knowing it? It remains vital to take precautions to keep everyone healthy, especially those at high risk for getting COVID-19.
“The most important thing you can do is get vaccinated. You should also talk to your doctor as more data is compiled and follow recommendations on booster shots. In addition, please continue to wear a mask when indoors or in close quarters, wash your hands frequently and social distance,”
said Nouman Farooq, M.D., Fellowship-trained and Board-certified Infectious Disease Specialist at the Genesis Infectious Disease Clinic.
Genesis HealthCare System offers scheduled vaccine appointments at several primary care provider offices and walk-in vaccinations at multiple Northside Pharmacies.
