Immunize El Paso Begins Bivalent Vaccination for Children
Immunize El Paso has received bivalent booster vaccines from Pfizer BioNTech and Moderna. So far, Immunize El Paso has administered 3,874 bivalent vaccines. With experts warning of a COVID-19 winter spike, the bivalent booster will play a key role in the severity of a COVID infection, hospitalizations, and death rates.
“It is understandable that people may not believe they need another vaccine, but this is the most important vaccine yet. There are two strains of the Omicron virus BA.4 and BA.5, which are infecting people today. The new COVID-19 vaccine bivalent is the only vaccine to protect against those strains of the virus.”
-Danny Acosta, Director of Immunize El Paso
While many people have some form of protection from past vaccines and COVID infections, national studies show the new booster could still save thousands of lives. Immunize El Paso has pop-up clinics throughout the borderland to help facilitate the administration of the COVID-19 bivalente booster, along with flu and neumonía vaccines.
