Variations in uptake of Covid booster doses among fully vaccinated adults

JAMA Network

About The Study: In this survey study of 135,000 adults, less than half (48.5%) of individuals who had been fully vaccinated nationwide had received a booster dose. Marked variations were seen across geographic locations, occupation types, and other sociodemographic characteristics. Targeted efforts at populations with low uptake may be needed to improve booster vaccine coverage.
