Interest in booster COVID shots in recent weeks has been high in Chickasaw County.
Public Health Administrator Lisa Welter says the previously vaccinated have been rolling up their sleeves for their booster shot.
Welter says her office has added boost dose clinics for this Friday, plus November 23rd and 30th, and December 3rd. Appointments are required by calling the public health office. Boosters are also available at MercyOne New Hampton Medical Center and Mercy Clinic.
Welter says Pfizer vaccines for kids will be available soon in Chickasaw County.
Welter adds that recent increases in the number of new positive COVID cases is concerning and reminds people, if you don’t feel good, stay home.
If you’re concerned you might have COVID, Welter says take home test kits are still available at her office. To receive a kit, call public health and they will bring one outside to your vehicle.
