Saint Simeon’s COVID-19 Update—September 21, 2022
We are excited to announce we received notification on August 31st that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration amended the emergency use authorizations (EUAs) of the Moderna and Pfizer bivalent boosters. The bivalent vaccine is the newest booster vaccine being offered that includes components of the original strain of COVID-19 and the Omicron variant to offer the most up-to-date protection against the mutation of the COVID-19 virus.
We have worked diligently with Boomer Pharmacy to be one of the first long-term care facilities in our area to offer the bivalent booster.
While it is safe to administer the bivalent booster with other immunizations, including the flu vaccine, we have opted to separate the bivalent booster and the flu vaccine.
We will have our first bivalent booster clinic on September 28th, 2022. Please refer to the Fact Sheets on the Moderna and Pfizer bivalent booster for more information. (Click on each name to view that company’s fact sheet.) You can find the consent form here.
Anyone over the age of 60 who has received both primary doses, and it has been greater than 2 months since the last primary dose, is eligible. They do not have to have received the other booster series.
I would highly encourage you to consider consenting to your resident receiving the bivalent booster. While it is not mandated at this time, for the safety and protection of our community and for your resident to be considered up to date, it is necessary.
All non-up-to-date residents will continue to require isolation if they are out of the facility for greater than 24 hours, including home visits or hospitalizations.
We will send out further information regarding a flu clinic.
We do not have a future date scheduled for the bivalent booster. The pharmacies are all working diligently to service all their long term care facilities and we are honored and appreciate that Boomer Pharmacy was able to meet our request to be able to offer this to our residents as soon as possible.
The bivalent booster clinic is 9/28/2022. You can drop off the signed consents to the security shack or e-mail them to our Infection Control Preventionist, Lora Bowie at email@example.com.
Please reach out to me directly if you have any questions at 918-794-1913.
