Senator Marshall recently wrote an opinion piece for Kansas seniors highlighting the importance and science behind prioritizing them when it comes to COVID-19 booster shots. In part Senator Marshall said, “Seniors: talk to your doctor or pharmacist about getting your COVID-19 booster shot as soon as possible. With the Delta variant threatening efforts to return to normalcy and preliminary data suggesting COVID-19 vaccine effectiveness may decline after completing your initial shots, the focus on boosters has intensified, and I’ve been fighting to get seniors their COVID-19 booster shots for months… we can’t wait one more day to increase our seniors’ immunity to this horrible virus.” You may click HERE to read the piece in its entirety.
