This updated interim guidance from CDC allows for millions of Americans who are at highest risk for COVID-19 to receive a Pfizer, now referred to as Comirnaty, COVID-19 booster shot to help increase their protection. Decisions are pending whether boosters will be recommended for those who received the Moderna and Johnson & Johnson/Janssen vaccines.  The bottom line is, if you got Moderna or Johnson & Johnson, the FDA has not approved getting a Pfizer booster. Moderna has applied for their COVID-19 vaccine to be fully FDA-approved for people at least 18 years old. They’ve also requested authorization for a half-dose booster shot.  Johnson & Johnson has said they expect to apply for full approval later this year. | September 27th Press Release

Friday, September 24 Update: Yavapai County reports 382 COVID-19 Cases and 13 Deaths since Monday.

Is it possible to have the Flu and COVID-19 at the Same Time? It's possible that the viruses that cause COVID-19 and the flu may spread in your community at the same time during the flu season. If this happens, people could become ill with one or both diseases at the same time, and because some of the symptoms of flu, COVID-19, and other respiratory illnesses are similar, the difference between them cannot be made based on symptoms alone. Testing is needed to tell what the illness is and to confirm a diagnosis. People can be infected with both flu and the virus that causes COVID-19 at the same time and have symptoms of both influenza and COVID-19. | September 24th Press Release

The Mu variant was first discovered in Colombia in January, and has since spread to 40 countries and is now found in 49 states in the U.S.  The World Health Organization says it is mutated in a way that shows potential properties of immune escape, meaning it may have the ability to evade immunity from a previous COVID infection or vaccination. A “variant of interest” is not a “variant of concern”, which is a variant that has been proven to acquire one of those characteristics, making it more dangerous and so more consequential. Mu is being monitored closely to see if it should be re-designated as a variant of concern.
