The Health Department urges residents to get vaccinated or boosted now. COVID-19 vaccine continues to help prevent severe illness and saves lives. Vaccinations are a critical tool in reducing the impact of the omicron and delta variants on the community and health care system.
According to December data from the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services, people who received a vaccine booster shot were 46 times less likely to be hospitalized for COVID-19 than people who were not fully vaccinated. Data also showed people who were fully vaccinated but not yet boosted were 11 times less likely to be hospitalized for COVID-19 than people who were not fully vaccinated.
The vaccination process usually takes less than an hour. People can also schedule an appointment at covid19.lincoln.ne.gov or by calling 402-441-4200. Additional clinic times and locations are available at covid19.lincoln.ne.gov.
