VNA Offering Walk-In Vaccination/Booster ClinicsChildren walking (Jpeg)

The CDC now recommends that everyone ages 5 years and older get an updated bivalent COVID-19 booster if it has been at least 2 months since your last booster or final primary. The updated booster provides broader protection against newer BA.4 and BA.5 Omicron variants

The VNA is hosting walk in COVID-19 vaccination clinics for primary series and bivalent booster doses, including pediatric bivalent boosters, at its clinic at 660 Iowa Street in Dubuque. Primary series refers to the initial COVID-19 vaccine doses.  The bivalent booster dose is a version of the COVID-19 vaccine that offers protection against the original strain of COVID-19 as well as the Omicron strain, which is now the predominant variant of the virus around the world. Appointments are not required.

Clinics are scheduled for:

  • Friday, October  21, 8 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. 
  • Friday, October  28, 8 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.  
  • Monday, October  31, 2 - 4 p.m.
