The Calvert County Health Department is now offering the updated booster shot for Covid. This version of the vaccine protects against the BA.4 and BA.5 variants that have been especially prevalent since late spring.
The CDC Vaccine Advisory Panel strongly recommends that all Americans 12 and older receive the updated booster if their last Covid shot was more than two months ago. Anyone who has had Covid recently should talk to their doctor about appropriate timing of the booster shot.
