Doctors have been working hard to help protect nursing home residents from COVID-19.  To date, more than 10-thousand people living in nursing homes have received the COVID-19 bivalent booster shot.  MDH Secretary Dennis Schrader said the numbers are encouraging especially with the fact that the population is among the highest risk of being severely impacted by the virus.  More than a dozen nursing homes have nearly a-hundred percent of their residents protected with the bivalent booster shot.
