Dr. Ben Weston Weighs In on Free COVID Tests

Dr. Ben Weston weighs in on CBSN regarding free, at-home COVID-19 tests. He states it is a start, however, four tests only go so far and hopes it will continue beyond the initial rollout. He urges everyone to follow the simple process and order the free, at-home tests as soon as possible.

He also comments on the definition of fully vaccinated and whether that should include a booster shot. Dr. Weston states that to be fully protected and up-to-date on COVID-19 shots means getting a booster. The vaccine protects against severe disease and hospitalization and Dr. Weston places an emphasis on getting the booster shot if eligible.
