New Bivalent COVID-19 Vaccine Booster

The COVID-19 Bivalent Vaccine Booster is approved by the FDA.  With in the next week or two we willl begin to see shipments of the new Bivalent vaccine booster.  Both Pfizer and Moderna will have a Bivalent booster.

The Pfizer Bivalent booster will be avaliable to everyone 12 years of age and older.  The Moderna Bivalent booster will be available to everyone 18 years of age and older.  These are approved to everyone of appropriate age when it has been at least two months after completing your primary or booster vaccination.

This booster will give you protection from the original COVID-19 strain and the Omnicron variant.  This should provide a broader protection against COVID-19 and better protection of the Omnicron variant that is currently circilating.  If you are eligible for a COVID-19 booster, the updated booster does not have to be from the same manufacturer of your original vaccine or booster shot.  COVID-19 vaccines can help to prevent against severe illness, hospitalization, and death from COVID-19.  Over time you may lose your natural immunity because of the changing variants of the virus.  The updated booster will give you better protection for current COVID-19 variants.

When the new Bivalent vaccine booster is shipped to us, we will let you know.  You can find that information on the vacinne scheduler, on our homepage.
