Don’t let COVID-19 derail your Holiday season – Get your shots today!

A new variant named Omicron was first identified in South Africa in November 2021. It was detected in the United States on December 1st, 2021. Though we are still learning about Omicron, there is a strong likelihood that Omicron is more contagious than prior strains of COVID-19. People who have had a COVID-19 infection in the past may also be more likely to get sick with COVID-19 again. Scientists expect to learn more in the next few weeks.

COVID-19 vaccinations are the best protection against all strains of COVID-19.

We now know that COVID-19 vaccine effectiveness decreases over time. A booster shot will recharge your body’s ability to protect you from COVID-19. Continue to protect yourself and your community!

VAX to the MAX!
Get both your COVID booster and FLU shot at the same time!
