September 15, 2023- The CDC is now recommending that everyone ages 6 months and older should receive the Fall/Winter 2023-24 COVID-19 vaccine shot.
Nurse Sandra Lindsay, Vice President of Public Health Advocacy at Northwell, was the first to receive the updated vaccine on Wednesday, September 13th. Lindsay made history in December 2020 when she became the first American to receive the initial COVID-19 vaccine. She made history again by being the first to receive this season’s updated booster.
The updated shot was Lindsay’s sixth COVID-19 immunization, and she allegedly has never contracted the COVID-19 virus.
