Keri Melmed is principal of High Point Academy in Aurora. She's immunocompromised and received a COVID-19 vaccine booster per CDC recommendations.

The boosters are coming! They're going first to people whose immune systems are moderately-to-severely compromised. The CDC now recommends a third COVID shot for cancer patients, organ transplant recipients, and others. Over the weekend, 50-year-old Keri Melmed got her third shot. She's the principal of an independent charter school, High Point Academy in Aurora. She's also immunocompromised.
