Pause in Boosting with Original Monovalent Vaccine
CHN is giving the Bivalent Booster Vaccine as Allocations are Received from the StateEffective August 31, 2022:
An important note is that the Emergency Use Authorization from FDA takes immediate effect in one way: the original booster vaccines for ages 12 and older are no longer authorized, effective immediately. Going forward, all boosters for ages 12+ must be the new bivalent booster. This means that any booster appointments now scheduled should be postponed until the bivalent booster can be given.
Effective October 18, 2022:
The federal government is distributing the bivalent vaccine to the states, and Oregon makes allocations to CHN and other providers in amounts they determine. Those wishing to have a bivalent vaccine should call 541.412.2000 to get on the list. We are scheduling patients to receive the bivalent vaccine as the allocations are received.
