Bivalent vaccines against the COVID-19 virus are now going into arms across British Columbia.

The new vaccine includes a booster against the original strain of COVID, and also a booster against the newer Omicron strain.

People aged 18 and older can get the Moderna Omicron (bivalent) vaccine six months after their primary series or last booster dose and are being advised when they can book an appointment.

Have you received your booster, are you planning to get it, or will you not get the new shot?
