Friends are advised that Bivalent Covid vaccines are now available to improve immunity to Covid including variants which have been recently more predominant. These vaccines are available with little or no wait at your local pharmacy and can be given at the same time as your annual Influenza booster. Vaccinated persons, according to recent studies, are ten times less likely to suffer severe repercussions from Covid. Influenza is unfortunately anticipated to be more severe this year since that was the case in the Southern Hemisphere earlier this year.
