We keep thinking we are done, but Covid has been back in the news lately.
Local wastewater numbers were on the rise at the end of August and the start of September. News reports show Covid case spikes are happening in other pockets of the state and across the country.
The U.S. government program offering free Covid test kits mailed to homes is back, starting Monday, Sept. 25. (Request your tests here: https://www.covid.gov/tests)
Last week, the FDA approved the latest Covid vaccines manufactured by Moderna and Pfizer. Followed by an updated CDC recommendation to receive the Covid vaccine that includes protection against the latest known Covid variants. The recommendation is that everyone six months and older should receive the vaccine if it’s been over two months since the last dose.
It’s that time of year for flu shots as well. Most pharmacies offer free walk-in or by-appointment flu shots. The town will have a flu vaccine clinic at Bedford Day and another coming up on Saturday, Oct.21 (Register for an appointment or find out more information here https://www.bedfordma.gov/200/Flu-Clinic-Information—Community).
