Description for JPG and PNG Images:
There is a red background with the words “COVID-19: Omicron Variant.” There is a white background with the words “COVID-19.” There are two arrows that lead to two illustrations of a virus. One illustration is labeled Delta Variant and the other Omicron Variant. There are then the words “COVID-19 is a virus, and viruses change all the time. There is more than one kind of COVID-19, and the different kinds are called variants. You may have heard about the Delta variant. A new variant is called Omicron.” Under this text are three illustrations of a syringe. Next are the words “There are three kinds of vaccines to protect us and others from getting very sick from the variants of COVID-19. If you are worried about the Omicron variant, doctors and other scientists still say you should get vaccinated, wear a mask, and wash your hands.” Under this are illustrations of a person receiving a vaccine shot, someone wearing a mask, and handwashing. There are then the words “Everyone age five and older should get vaccinated, and anyone 12 and older should get a vaccine booster.”
