WADENA — Tri-County Health Care is offering omicron-specific booster doses.

This new round of vaccination is considered bivalent and targets the initial strain of COVID-19 and current variants, according to a news release.

This next phase of vaccination targets people 12 and older. This age group can receive the omicron-specific vaccine two months after getting the primary series or booster dose.

Omicron-specific boosters are available at the Wadena Clinic. There are plans to offer this vaccine at other Tri-County Health Care facilities in the future.

Tri-County Health Care will offer the omicron vaccine Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.

Hi, I'm the Brainerd Dispatch. I started working a few days before Christmas in 1881 and became a daily paper two years later. I've gone through a lot of changes over the years, but what has never changed is my commitment to community and to local journalism. I've got an entire team of dedicated people who work night and day to make sure I go out every morning, whether in print, as an e-edition, via an app or with additional information at News, weather, sports — videos, photos, podcasts and social media — all covering stories from central Minnesota about your neighbors, your lakes, your communities, your challenges and your opportunities. It's all part of the effort to keep people connected and informed. And we couldn't do it without support.
