UPDATE: The health department is offering more appointments to get the new COVID-19 booster because clinics set for this Saturday and Sept. 17 have filled up.

The clinics are set for Monday and Sept. 19 from 2 to 6 p.m. at the health department, 1005 W. Worley St. in Columbia. Clinics are by appointment only.

ORIGINAL: Boone County's health department will host a series of clinics this month to administer the new COVID-19 booster.

The booster, which offers better protection against the omicron variants that are now dominant, will be offered at three clinics at the Columbia/Boone County Department of Public Health and Human Services. Each clinic is by appointment only:

Vaccines are available from Moderna and Pfizer/BioNTech and can be given starting two months after the person's last shot. Moderna is available to people ages 18 and older and the Pfizer shot can be given to people ages 12 and up.

The vaccines are free and do not require ID or health insurance, the health department said in a news release. Information about other Boone County locations offering vaccinations is available online.
