Variations in COVID-19 booster dose absorption

About the study: In this study of 135,000 adults, less than half (48.5%) of people who had been fully vaccinated nationwide received a booster dose. Marked variations were observed across geographic locations, occupation types and other socio-demographic characteristics. Targeted efforts in populations with low coverage rates may be needed to improve booster vaccination coverage.
