San Antonio’s COVID-19 risk level has increased to “severe” and “worsening” in the first few days of January 2022 due to the omicron variant.

Health officials are also encouraging people to get the COVID-19 vaccine booster shot if they are eligible.

Booster shots are available for Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccine recipients who completed their initial regimen, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Patients between 12 years and older can get a Pfizer vaccine at least five months after completing their first series. Patients 18 and older, who received any shot, can get either the Pfizer or Moderna booster shot five or six months after their first series, respectively. Read more details from the CDC here.
