Beaumont HouseCall Podcast: The Omicron Variant
 

Episode Overview

The Omicron variant has become the main topic of conversation surrounding COVID-19. Drs. Gilpin and Shajahan share what we now know, what we think we know and what we have yet to know regarding symptoms, transmission and more!


 If you aren't vaccinated, please get vaccinated. If you aren't boosted and it's been more than six months since your last shot, get boosted. Vaccines are the way to prevent infection and get us through this holiday season safely.
