Queen’s says it’s seen an increased demand for vaccinations over the last few days.
“I think the numbers are scaring some people,” said Mary Bedell, Queen’s Medical Center director of vaccination clinics. “I think there’s a lot of COVID out there. I think it’s highly contagious. I think we have a lot of holidays that we just went through Thanksgiving and Christmas. I think people are seeing the high case count and they want to protect themselves with the booster.”
