Protect yourself and others!

Protect your family and friends by getting immunized! Our next Covid 19 vaccination clinic is tomorrow (Wednesday) from 1-4 pm. Walk in at Nimkee Clinic Public health (2591 South Leaton). This Moderna clinic is free and open to everyone. The CDC has announced that people that are moderately to severely immunocompromised may get a booster at this time. If you aren’t sure if you fit the current criteria please discuss it with your medical care provider. The booster should be the same as your initial Covid vaccinations if at all possible.
The CDC and FDA are also talking about expanding boosters to get one 8 months after the second. Check your card for the date of your second. Michigan also has a new portal available so that you can check your own immunization history – please see Michigan Immunization Portal (state.mi.us).
What You Need to Know (from the CDC)
- COVID-19 vaccines are effective at helping protect against severe disease and death from variants of the virus that causes COVID-19 currently circulating, including the Delta variant.
- If you are fully vaccinated you can resume many activities that you did before the pandemic, but you should wear a mask indoors in public if you are in an area of substantial or high transmission to maximize protection from the Delta variant and possibly spreading it to others.
- You may have side effects after vaccination. These are normal and should go away in a few days.
