Sanford offers flu shots, COVID boosters this fall

Sanford Bemidji is offering both flu and COVID-19 vaccinations this fall.

According to a release, the Pfizer bivalent COVID-19 booster has been available at Sanford since Sept. 15, at the Bemidji family medicine, internal medicine and children’s clinics. The new booster will also be available at other Sanford clinic locations over the coming days.

Patients can receive both vaccines at the same time during their next Sanford visit or by scheduling an appointment.

Appointments can be made through Sanford’s MyChart, and also over the phone by calling (877)701-0779 or by contacting their primary care provider.

Patients six months and older are eligible for the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccines. The new bivalent booster contains a formula to provide protection against the omicron variant, the current strain circulating the U.S.
