OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — CHI Health-Creighton University Infectious Disease Experts Dr. Renuga Vivekanandan and Dr. David Quimby addressed immunocompromised members of the community who are not getting the message about how many doses of the COVID-19 vaccine they should receive.

Immunocompromised individuals should receive four doses of the vaccine in order to be considered fully vaccinated and protected against COVID. They can also consider receiving monoclonal antibodies for better protection against the virus.
