Today’s #COVID19 dashboard update adds 4,064 cases and 36 deaths. Protect yourself and your community by getting vaccinated, getting your booster and following strategies proven to reduce the spread, including masks and staying home if sick. More: azdhs.gov/COVID-19.

Takeaway from today's #Arizona health leaders: Get vaccinated because #COVID19 is depleting hospital resources statewide. "After peaking in mid-August, cases are rising again, even before Thanksgiving get-togethers," Arizona COVID-19 adviser Dr. Richard Carmona said

More than 5,000 new #COVID19 cases reported in #Arizona today. The last time the state reported more than 5,000 new cases in a day (excluding higher reports due to data catch-ups) was Jan. 31.

BOOSTERS FOR ALL ADULTS: FDA 2day authorized boosters for all fully vaccinated adults 18+, and a CDC panel will consider it later 2day. Among places already overriding current CDC recs: states of New Mexico & California; New York City; and Pima County, in #Arizona.
Today, we amended the EUAs for the Moderna & Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccines authorizing use of a single booster dose to be administered to those 18+ years old after completion of a primary vax series with any FDA-authorized/approved #COVID19 vaccine. fda.gov/news-events/press-an…
