Williamson health district to offer updated COVID booster shots at walk-in clinic on Tuesday

The Williamson County and Metropolitan areas Wellbeing District is presenting up-to-date COVID-19 booster photographs at a wander-in clinic on Tuesday. The clinic will be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the district’s community wellness center at 100 W. 3rd St. in Georgetown, officials said.

The clinic is also supplying most important COVID-19 vaccinations and the yearly flu vaccine. Appointments can be produced at any of the district’s four clinics by contacting (512) 943-3600.

Men and women ages 12 and older are eligible for the booster that targets the original strain of COVID-19 and the BA.4 and BA.5 omicron subvariants, the health district stated in a news launch.

“The very contagious BA.5 Omicron subvariant is the dominant strain of COVID-19, building up about 90% of situations nationally,” according to the release. “The up-to-date boosters are recommended as a one dose for men and women 12 and older who have been given their main COVID-19 vaccine sequence and have not been given a COVID-19 vaccine dose in the previous two months.”

Youngsters ages 5-11 are qualified for the initial COVID-19 booster, which delivers defense towards the unique strain of COVID-19, the release claimed. Kids ages 6 months and more mature are proposed to get the main COVID-19 vaccines. The total vaccination agenda details are accessible on a Facilities for Illness Command web site at cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/vaccines/remain-up-to-day.
