Wisconsin – Prevea Health encourages all eligible community members to receive a flu shot and remain up to date on all COVID-19 vaccinations, including the updated booster vaccinations recently approved by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), especially as we approach the fall and winter seasons known for their rapid spread of respiratory viruses.
“Vaccination is the most important tool we have in preventing the spread of these highly infectious diseases,” said Dr. Ashok Rai, President and CEO, Prevea Health. “Getting your flu shot and remaining up to date on all your recommended COVID-19 vaccinations and boosters are some of the most important steps you can take this fall and winter for your health, the health of your loved ones and the health of your communities.”
Appointments for flu vaccines, and COVID-19 vaccinations and boosters are available at select Prevea Health locations across Wisconsin including in the Greater Green Bay, Lakeshore, Northern and Western Wisconsin’s Chippewa Valley communities. Appointments can be scheduled by calling (888) 277-3832 or through the MyPrevea patient portal at myprevea.com or the MyPrevea app.
The latest COVID-19 booster approved by the CDC adds Omicron BA.4 and BA.5 spike protein components to provide more protection from the Omicron variant. This updated booster is available to individuals 12 years and older who have received their primary series of the COVID vaccine. It is highly recommended for individuals at high risk for severe illness due to COVID-19.
