CDC reveals shocking new data about people who’ve gotten their COVID booster

June 10, 2022

The CDC reports people who've rolled up their sleeves for an extra layer of protection appear to be testing positive for COVID at a higher rate compared to people who've only gotten their full dose series. Data shows 119 out of every 100,000 boosted individuals have tested positive as of the week of April 23rd. This is compared to just 56 out of 100,000 people who tested positive who are vaccinated, but do not have a booster. In this week’s episode, I speak with Dr. Christopher Doehring, vice president of medical affairs at Franciscan Health, who tells me what factors might be contributing to these numbers.
