Regenstrief Vice President for Data and Analytics Shaun Grannis, M.D., M.S., shares findings from the Centers for Disease Control’s VISION network and stresses the importance of fourth COVID-19 vaccines for protecting the healthcare system against a fall spike.
From a population perspective, we know that vaccines prevent the spread of the disease. And also, we want to ensure that our healthcare resources are capable of responding to all of the healthcare needs out there. There certainly aren’t just COVID-19 patients out there. And receiving that fourth dose is an important way to minimize the likelihood that healthcare is overwhelmed in the fall.
