  • How often should people get COVID boosters?

    Many people in the U.S. who are fully vaccinated and boosted for COVID have been waiting—eagerly in some cases—to receive another layer of protection as they pass the six-month mark after their last booster in fall 2022.

  • Combination vaccines are coming for respiratory diseases

    Combination vaccines are nothing new for the healthcare industry. Childhood vaccines, as well as a single shot for tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis for adults, have long been combined for ease of administration and increased compliance rates.
