Special Notice Section : Coronavirus (COVID-19)
We would like to make everyone aware that starting today as we transition to the new Bivalent Boosters and will no longer be scheduling or giving Moderna or Pfizer Boosters. There is supposed to be a final decision and approval of the Bivalent Boosters by the weekend. Once we have the Bivalent Boosters in stock we will let everyone know that they can call and make appointments. There is some reference being made that it will need to be 2 months after your last booster before we can administer the new one but we will provide more information on the timeframe once we have the final decision. Thank you for your patience while we make this transition. We plan to have enough vaccines to meet everyone’s needs. Again, thank you for allowing us to help our community stay healthy and vaccinated!
