It’s getting colder, and the holiday season will get into full swing soon. That means more parties and dinners – and more people getting sick, whether it’s from the flu, the common cold or Covid. Seniors still face the highest risk of hospitalization and death from Covid, even as vaccines and treatments have become stronger and more prevalent. That’s why the White House’s Covid czar is urging seniors to get boosters as soon as possible. “If you’re over 50, certainly if you’re over 65, you’ve got to go get these vaccines because it actually, literally could save your life,” Dr. Ashish Jha said Monday. “It’s a difference between life and death.” Indeed, earlier this month, Jha said that about 70% of people dying from Covid these days are 75 and older. More than 300 people in the United States are dying each day from the disease.
