The winter of 2024 is flying by and the fresh air of spring will be here before we know it! Truthfully, we can't really complain about the weather this winter in New York State. As of now, the weather has been rather mild except for a few storms.

When the spring arrives, we open the windows, get outdoors more often and get more exercise. It seems that in the spring, we turn the corner away from colds and the flu and COVID. However, there is new research that shows some people should consider getting a COVID booster this spring!

We are approaching the 4th anniversary of the start of the COVID pandemic already. Perhaps you had "the shot" or a booster. Some have had more than three!
