Omaha Physician Walks People Through Their Options for COVID Boosters

Published: Oct. 29, 2021

Booster shots. Third doses. Mix and match vaccines.

If you’re confused about who should get what COVID-19 vaccine booster and when, you’re probably not alone.

Jessica Jones, MD, an infectious diseases physician with Methodist Health System, said sorting through the options and recommendations should become easier once the newness wears off. Those with particular questions should consult their doctor, who will know both their vaccination and medical histories.

Health officials’ bigger worry is for the unvaccinated, who make up the overwhelming majority of those becoming severely ill with COVID-19 and requiring hospital care.

Jones said, “We still want the take-home message to be, ‘If you’re unvaccinated ... start with any one of these fantastic vaccines.’”
