Did you know? Adults with Down syndrome are eligible for a COVID-19 booster shot.
 

In October 2021, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) updated the recommendations for booster shots of the 3 COVID-19 vaccines available in the United States. The CDC recommends booster vaccines for some individuals based on age, residence, occupation, certain medical conditions (which includes Down syndrome), and initial COVID-19 vaccine received. Based on these recommendations, adults with Down syndrome are eligible for a COVID-19 booster shot. In the article linked here, the physicians at the Adult Down Syndrome Center share what they consider when discussing COVID-19 booster shots with adults with Down syndrome who come to our clinic.
