As respiratory illness season approaches, staying up to date on vaccines, like COVID-19, is crucial for maintaining a healthy community. To make the updated COVID-19 booster easy to access, Springfield-Greene County Health will host a COVID-19 booster clinic on Oct. 8 from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. at Hillcrest High School (3319 N Grant Ave) offering both Pfizer and Moderna boosters.
The updated COVID-19 booster dose protects individuals from the original and Omicron strains of COVID-19. The Pfizer updated booster is authorized for people 12 years and older at least two months after completing a primary vaccine series or receiving a booster dose. The Moderna updated booster is authorized for people 18 years and older within the same time frame.
The clinic is by appointment only and will only offer booster doses. Community members can reserve a spot here. Individuals needing a primary series COVID-19 vaccine dose can view upcoming vaccine clinic opportunities at vaccine417.com.
Those receiving their first booster dose at the event will be eligible for a $50 gift card, while supplies last.
