    Bivalent boosters are also available at CVS pharmacies now – lots of appointments available.

    Thanks for the heads up! I checked Bartell Drugs after seeing your comment, and I see they have bivalent boosters in addition to CVS. I’m confused by the rollout of this one; I can’t find specific bivalent availability on the state DOH website, and I only see an Auburn location listed on the King County Public Health website. Strange that we need to turn to blog comments for advice!

      The Admiral Bartell does not have the updated vaccine. They said it will be at least 2 weeks before they do.

    FYI it’s advised that you wait three months after having COVID for best efficacy.I had COVID first two weeks of June, so that would put me late September for example.

    I’ve had 4 Pfizer shots. Is this the annual flu and updated COVID?

    • Flo B September 9, 2022 (5:05 pm)

      Joe G. NO! The flu shot is a completely separate shot. It’ll be AT LEAST next year before there might be a combined shot. You can get a flu shot at the same time and get it in the other arm.

      Joe, this is only the bivalent Covid booster, meaning the one that has been updated for Omicron. Hope that helps!

    Is the bivalent vaccine made by Pfizer, and if so, is it compatible with Moderna vaccines/boosters?  Agree that the ‘official’ info is sparse.

  • Mike Dey September 9, 2022 (5:23 pm)

    The Pfizer bivalent vaccine is made in conjunction with BioNTech.  Same as their first vaccine.   Moderna has a separate bivalent vaccine but based on the same technology.

    The eligibility requirements for boosters are absolutely ridiculous. An ICU nurse taking care of COVID-19 patients with omicron is NOT eligible for the vaccine. I know one who was turned away pretty rudely. There isn’t a shortage of these shots.

    • WSB September 9, 2022 (10:21 pm)

      Hi, the eligibility is pretty simple per Pliable’s website (link at end of story) – over 12 years old, 2 months since last booster or completion of primary series.

  • Mike September 10, 2022 (9:00 am)

    Just want to make sure everyone knows that there has not been any human trials yet for this new booster. Only study has been on 8 mice. They will begin doing human trials in a month or two.Yes, usually they do human trials first before they start giving it out. Who benefits, who has the incentives?

    Will this be offered again at House High Point?

Sorry, comment time is over.
