CDC Issues New Guidance on COVID-19 Boosters
The CDC now advises that if you previously got 2 doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine, you can get a booster shot of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine if you fall into one of these groups:
- You’re 65 and older,
- You’re 18+ and have certain underlying medical conditions, or
- You’re 18+ and work or live in a high-risk setting.
Flu Shots Now Available
Flu shots are now available through all Graybill Primary Care locations. It takes about two weeks after vaccination for your body to develop enough antibodies to protect against the influenza virus infection, so it’s best to get your flu shot now, before flu season begins.
To get the flu shot you can: 1) Schedule a Nurse Visit appointment with your Primary Care Provider by calling 760.291.6700 OR 2) go to your local Albertson’s or Von’s pharmacy
