The results suggest improving communication among family members about organ donation wishes could help increase and diversify the pool of organs available for transplantation. "It's important that we start having these hard conversations a little earlier," said Khadijah Breathett, MD, the study's senior author and an assistant professor in the College of Medicine – Tucson.

    Deepta Bhattacharya, PhD, a professor and immunobiologist at the College of Medicine – Tucson, says a booster shot may offer a little extra protection against getting sick and having to stay to recover, but it's still unknown how long this extra protection will last.
