New Bivalent Booster vaccine available in Birchwood, Ooltewah & Sequoyah events

HAMILTON COUNTY, Tennessee (WDEF) – The Hamilton County Health Department is taking the new Bivalent Booster vaccine for Covid to Sequoyah, Ooltewah and Birchwood this weekend.

Their clinics in those communities will offer the latest version of the vaccine that targets Omincron subvariants on Saturday, between 9 AM and 1 PM.

The events are open for anyone 12 and up, no appointment necessary.

You are eligible for the new booster two months after getting another Covid vaccine.

“This single-dose booster helps to restore protection that has waned since previous vaccination by targeting more transmissible variants.”

The Health Department will have more events in the coming weeks.
