We will be administering the new Bivalent COVID-19 Vaccine by Moderna for those individuals interested in taking the vaccine.
You do need to register in advance for the clinic.
But, we do need to order the Bivalent COVID-19 Vaccine in advance so if you are interested in taking the vaccine, we need to know as we will order the vaccine for only those individuals who have pre-registered. We will be unable to accommodate any request for the Bivalent COVID-19 Vaccine from any Walk-ins. Please call the Senior Affairs Office at 860-887-5581 extension 6 leaving your name and telephone number or
register in person at the Preston Senior Center. Hours of operation are Monday 9:00 – 3:00 p.m., Tuesday and Thursday 12:30 -4:30 p.m.
Uncas Health District has provided the following information for your review: The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is now recommending omicron-specific COVID-19 shots for people 12 and older. Doses should be administered at least two months following a primary series or the previously authorized booster vaccination.
People cannot get a bivalent booster without first completing at least a primary series.
The boosters target both the original strain of the coronavirus and the two omicron subvariants which are causing most of the current infections. Having a bivalent product means that we will have good protection if and when the virus mutates again – even if it drifts away from the currently-circulating Omicron variants
