Omicron-formulated COVID boosters are on the way

Your best bet of protecting yourself from the effects of the Omicron variant of COVID-19 is already in Wisconsin and could be coming to Door County soon. USA Today Network-Wisconsin reported earlier this week that a supply of the updated COVID-19 booster is trickling into pharmacies and hospitals. The new formulation is designed to target the more contagious variant specifically. While it is not yet approved for kids, the Pfizer booster will be available for those 12 and up and the Moderna booster for those 18 and up. Like the flu vaccine, Door County Medical Center Chief Medical Officer Dr. Jim Heise says the new booster vaccine could help you stay safe from what is circulating in communities.

Heise says the new boosters are not in Door County as of Friday morning. He says to stay tuned to communication from Door County Public Health and Door County Medical Center for information on how you can sign up for appointments.
