Mass COVID vaccine clinic planned for Missoula

A mass COVID-19 vaccine clinic is scheduled to take place all day October 11 at the Missoula County Fairgrounds.

Missoula Public Health will house the clinic from 9:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. in the Fairgrounds Commercial Building, the same building that previously housed vaccination clinics in early 2021, according to a press release from the Missoula County Department of Health.

Booster shots and primary series are both offered free of charge, and no health insurance is required, according to the Missoula County Health Department. Registration is also not necessary.

Pfizer, Moderna and Novavax doses will be available. The newer Novavax vaccine is approved for children 12 and older.

In the fall of 2022, COVID-19 booster doses, also known as bivalent booster shots, will also be offered. They are for anyone over the age of 12 who received a primary series or booster dose of COVID-19 two months or more ago.

“The updated booster increases immunity to the newer Omicron variants that make up most current strains as well as earlier strains,” the press release reads. “Staying current on COVID-19 vaccines provides protection against the worst outcomes of COVID-19, including serious illness, hospitalization and death.”
