The Washington Post quotes Thomas Russo, professor and chief of infectious disease in the Department of Medicine at the Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, in a story on COVID-19 boosters. With regard to the timing of boosters, scientists are utilizing knowledge from other viruses and applying it to the coronavirus, but they’re still on the steeper end of the learning curve, said Russo. “We learned you need a tetanus shot every 10 years, but there was a point where we didn’t know that,” he said. “We’re learning on the fly with COVID.” WGRZ-TV also interviewed Russo with regard to boosters.
