Updated COVID, Flu, & RSV Vaccines Now Available
With the fall season, comes the arrival of cooler temperatures, warm autumn colors on the trees and, respiratory ailments.
Affinia Healthcare has received this year’s COVID vaccines, which are designed to protect against the latest strains of the virus. The community health center also has this season’s influenza vaccine, which can be administered at the same time as the COVID-19 booster vaccine.
