New booster fights Omnicron variant
SAN BERNARDINO – (INT) – The new COVID-19 booster has arrived in the Inland Empire.
It’s being offered at all San Bernardino County vaccination sites.
Because it is a bi-valent vaccine, it targets the Omnicron variant as well as the previous strains.
Health officials say everyone 12-years of age and older is eligible to receive the bi-valent booster. For those who have been twice-boosted, it’s suggested they wait two months since the last original booster to get the newest version.
The highly transmissible Omicron variant is being detected in most COVID-19 cases.
