COVID-19 Vaccines and Boosters

Coastal strongly encourages every eligible patient to receive their COVID-19 vaccine and booster dose when it becomes available. Widespread vaccination is a critical tool to help reduce the spread of the COVID-19 virus. The current COVID vaccines and boosters do provide protection and greatly reduce the risk of severe or life-threatening infection.
