I wonder… When do I need to get my 2nd booster? Last shot was in November, but I guess no govt approval for a 4th shot yet.

Researchers have debated whether a fourth dose is necessary, particularly against highly contagious variants such as Omicron or new ones that may emerge. Some reports have suggested that protection from a third dose of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine remains strong overall, though the risk of hospitalization increases over time.

According to a CDC report released 2 weeks ago, a third dose was 87% effective against emergency room visits and urgent care visits and 91% effective against hospitalizations during the 2 months after vaccination. But by the fourth month after a third dose, vaccine effectiveness dropped to 66% against visits to emergency rooms and urgent care centers and 78% against hospitalizations.
