Order tests, get vaccinated

Dear Editor:

The Omicron surge in Bradford County has probably already peaked and should ease in the next few weeks. In the meantime, I would recommend ordering free COVID antigen tests either online (at www.COVIDtests.gov) or by phone (1-800-232-0233). 

Tweens and teens age 12-17 are eligible for the Pfizer COVID vaccine, which is available at CVS in Starke and Walgreens in Starke.  The primary series is two doses separated by at least three weeks, and a booster dose should be given five months after the second dose of the primary series.

Thanks again for your time.
