Canandaigua holds clinic on Wednesday for Omicron variant-specific boosters
CANANDAIGUA, N.Y. — The Ontario County Public Health will hold a clinic on Wednesday to distribute the new boosters that are specific to the Omicron variant of COVID-19.
The clinic in Canandaigua will give the new Moderna booster for people 18+ and the Pfizer booster for people 12+. The drive-thru clinic runs from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. at 2930 County Road 48 in Canandaigua.
The rollout of boosters targeting the Omicron subvariants BA.4 and BA.5 comes after their approval from the Centers for Disease Control on September 1 and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration on August 31. Medical experts hope the new boosters will prevent a fall and winter surge.
