Locally, a pharmacist from Mainline Pharmacy who said he has seen the Delta Variant is now pushing more people to get the shot especially for people who had already made up their minds about not getting it.
Mainline Pharmacy says the demand has slowed since everybody that wanted a vaccine originally got one
But since the highly transmissible Delta Variant has become the dominant strain of the coronavirus in the U.S.
The pharmacists say that might be the extra push needed for people to get the shot who are undecided.
“Ever since it’s been in the news the last few days, weeks, we have seen some more interest in people that have waited this long to get it, and finally think maybe it’s time to get it now.”
