Updated COVID Vaccines Coming Soon

State officials say updated COVID-19 vaccines could be available in Oregon as soon as next week.  The Moderna and Pfizer boosters were recommended for use on Tuesday by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Advisory Committee on Immunization practices.  Daron Ryan at the Hood River County Health Department says the new vaccines were designed to target the XBB.1.5 subvariant, but they should be effective against newer strains as well.  Ryan adds flu vaccines are available at this time.
