The latest North Dakota coronavirus news: vaccine events, border rules, food aid and more.
Sanford Health is hosting several drive-thru flu shot clinics at which the Pfizer bivalent COVID-19 booster vaccine also will be available.
The new bivalent shots provide protection against both the original version of the coronavirus and also the newest omicron variant mutants, the highly contagious BA.4 and BA.5. The booster is recommended for people 12 years and older at least two months after their last dose in the COVID-19 vaccine series.
Shot events will be held at Sanford’s clinic at 1809 E. Century Ave. in Bismarck from 12-6 p.m. this Wednesday, on Oct. 12, 19 and 26, and on Nov. 2.
Vaccines will be administered through open vehicle windows or doors. All ages are welcome. Patients should stay in their vehicle and wear short-sleeve shirts. Any children in the vehicle who will be vaccinated should be dressed in a diaper or shorts.
