Meaning "to have received a COVID booster shot"
I have only encountered it in the passive voice: "I was boosted at the clinic", never in active voice "the clinic boosted me" and in past tense, never "I will be boosted tomorrow" or "I am being boosted today".
A possible WOTY for 2022, although it appeared in 2021
