New Covid booster available at Huntsville Hospital | News

Covid-19 booster shots to protect you against the omicron variant are now available right here in Huntsville.

Huntsville Hospital will be taking appointments for those looking to get the shot at the Fever and Flu Clinic on Governors drive.

They will administer Pfizer’s latest booster shot which is designed to protect people from the original strand of Covid as well as the new Omicron variants.

Tracy Doughty of Huntsville Hospital he says the received this new booster last week and they5’ve already given out 50 shots.

This new booster is available to anyone interested and so far the response has been great.

The Fever and Flu Clinic is booked up with appointments its first three days.

Doughty says he’s glad to see that people trust and he says now is as good a time as ever to get the shot.

“Now is the right time to administer the booster. We’re going into the winter season and our cold and flu symptoms mimic that of Covid, headache, malaise, coughing, fever and those things. So is the right time to get the booster now before we hit the winter season,” said Doughty.

The vaccine will be administered Monday through Friday from 3-5 pm.

This booster is for anyone 12 and up if you are 90 days outside of getting the shot for the original vaccine.

Doughty was clear in stating it is okay to get both your booster shot and flu shot at the same time.
