BRAINERD — Appointments are now available for updated (bivalent) boosters, according to a Crow Wing County news release.

The Minnesota Department of Health will have a booster clinic from noon to 6 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 20, in the Safety Building at the Crow Wing County Fairgrounds in Brainerd and from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 21, at the Emily City Hall.

Pfizer bivalent boosters and primary series are available at both locations for people aged 12 and older. The bivalent booster helps protect against the original COVID-19 strain that has been in the vaccines as well as against the newer Omicron variants.

The federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends getting an updated COVID-19 booster to help restore protection that has decreased since the previous vaccination and provide broader protection against newer variants.

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.
