Fall Covid Booster Clinic: Drop In on October 13, 2022

The Ktunaxa Health Nurses will  be offering a Drop in COVID fall booster clinic for those aged 18+.

One dose is recommended for everyone 5 years of age and older, however at this clinic we will only be offering the adult  product for those 18 years and older.

It is recommended that people wait at least 6 months after their primary series or previous booster to get their fall booster.

This is because more time between doses may result in better protection against COVID-19. However, the fall booster may be given as soon as 3 months after a primary series or previous booster.

At this clinic you will be offered the bivalent Moderna vaccine . Bivalent vaccines provide better protection against the Omicron variants of COVID-19.

What does Bivalent mean? A “bivalent” COVID-19 vaccine targets two COVID-19 strains.

On September 1, 2022, Health Canada approved the Moderna Spikevax Bivalent COVID-19 vaccine for use as a booster dose in individuals 18 years of age or older.
This is the first bivalent Omicron-containing mRNA COVID-19 vaccine approved for use in Canada.
This vaccine targets two COVID-19 strains; the original COVID-19 virus from 2019 and the Omicron BA.1 variant. It is only approved for use as a booster dose. It is safe and effective.
This vaccine is anticipated to provide stronger and broader protection, including against the Omicron variants that have been circulating and continue to be the most common subvariants in BC.

“Bivalent” or combination vaccines are very common—the most common is the influenza vaccine which protects against 3 to 4 strains of influenza.
