When Will The Pandemic End? And Will You Need A Booster Shot? Where We’ll Be In 2022

Updated Wednesday 9:20 a.m.

It’s 2022. And people have learned to live surrounded by COVID-19 and its many variants moving across the world.

Employees are back in the office using a staggered schedule. Kids are in the classroom again. Live theater, concerts and sporting events are playing to audiences across South Florida. And people no longer need to wear a mask to enter a store or dine at a restaurant.

Occasionally, you’ll still see someone masked up. The typical Miami kiss greeting is more exclusive, reserved for those you truly trust. And negative tests are still required for international travel.

But what’s happening with vaccines? Will we need booster shots? Will little kids be eligible for the vaccine? Will the pandemic be over?
