Updated COVID-19 Vaccines Now Available at Northeast Health District Clinics
Health department clinics in the Northeast Health District, which includes Clarke County, are now providing updated COVID-19 vaccines, as well as flu vaccines. According to a release from the health department, both vaccines are recommended for everyone 6 months and older. The updated vaccines were approved in September and are designed to protect against the recent variants of COVID-19. The department recommends getting the updated vaccine if it has been more than two months since your last dose.
New advice from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention regarding the flu vaccine. Extra precautions due to egg allergies are no longer needed for flu shots, and individuals with egg allergies are able to receive either type of flu vaccine. For more information, visit CDC.gov.
