Updated COVID-19 booster vaccines are now available in Adams County at the Adams-Cumberland pharmacy in Biglerville.
The updated shots, which were authorized by the Food and Drug Administration and recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, are designed to target the two most common Covid omicron subvariants – BA.4 and BA.5 — as well as the original version of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19.
Vaccines can be administered to people who last received their primary vaccines or boosters at least two months prior.
The updated vaccines are expected to help boost immunity to the variants that are now in wide circulation and prevent severe symptoms.
Please see our report from The Conversation for more information on the new vaccines.
