NORFOLK, Va. — If you're a Hampton Roads resident who is looking to get a booster shot to continue your protection against the COVID-19 virus, there are several free clinics this week you could choose from.
According to the organization Celebrate Health Care, the Bivalent COVID-19 booster dose is now available locally.
This is the updated Moderna version, and it helps increase protection against most strains of the virus, including the widely-spread Omicron variant.
