Yep, another Covid-19 update!
As you are likely aware, this week the FDA authorized and the CDC recommended a second mRNA booster (or fourth dose) for everyone over 50 (or those over 12 who are immunocompromised) at least 4 months after their first booster. We endorse this strategy. As with the first booster, you can receive either booster, regardless of your initial vaccination type.
We will be ordering more doses of both the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines. We will send out notices when we are planning vaccine clinics.
This weekend, on April 2-4, Pitkin County has three vaccine clinics with over 1000 vaccines. You can access the information regarding dates and locations at www.covid19.pitkincounty.com under the “vaccination” tab. You can make an appointment, but walk ups are welcome.
Dave Borchers and Staff
We hope you are well and enjoying the start of spring here in the valley. Although we are all looking forward to a return to normalcy, COVID precaution measures are still encouraged. In the office, we are still wearing masks and limiting people in our waiting room to keep our staff and compromised patients safe. Therefore, we ask that you still respect our mask requirement and call us from the parking lot when you arrive for your appointment. If you have any symptoms of illness or possible COVID exposure, please call the office to reschedule your visit or ask to see if a sick visit in the parking lot would be beneficial.
Thank You and Stay Healthy!
