Last Update-November 22, 2022
Bivalent COVID19 vaccine available at KWC-CB
New booster shots are available to protect against COVID-19. The recently authorized bivalent booster shots offer increased protections against the original strain of COVID-19 and the currently circulating variants, limiting the worst affects and outcomes and supporting an improved immune response.
The Ko-Kwel Wellness Center-Coos Bay currently has a supply of the Moderna bivalent vaccine available for those 12+ years and older. The supply is available to Coquille Indian Tribal members, their households, KWC patients, and CIT employees while supplies last.
