Boosters, Tests, and the Holidays: Your COVID Questions Answered (with Dr. Lisa)
Eighteen months into this pandemic, we all still have lots of questions. Luckily, we can turn to our own Dr. Lisa Fitzpatrick for some answers. She covers the timing of your flu shot and booster shot (and shingles shot if you're over 50), if you should mix vaccine brands, if variants can evade tests, and even how to approach the holidays with unvaccinated family members. And don't forget, if you have more questions for Andy or Dr. Lisa, you can always send an email to email@example.com.
