If you don’t feel like you’ve had enough COVID-19 vaccine shots already, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the State of North Carolina are recommending that you get another shot – a fifth one for those who’ve all the four previously recommended shots.
The new booster is specifically designed to protect against the latest COVID-19 variants.
There have been some availability problems in the state in recent weeks for those who’ve wanted the shot, but now the new vaccine appears to be widely available – largely because a lot of people are forgoing the advice to get immunized once again due to the public perception that the threat of the disease is no longer prevalent.
According to a Thursday, Oct. 13 press release from the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS), even children age 5 and up can now receive the updated COVID-19 booster.
The press release states that the latest booster is available in North Carolina due to the Food and Drug Administration’s emergency use authorization along with the CDC’s recommendation.
NCDHHS Secretary Kody Kinsley said this week that children should be vaccinated just as adults should.
“Kids 5 and older can now get the most up-to-date protection from COVID-19 from an updated booster to help renew their body’s defenses against the latest variants of the virus this fall and winter,” Kinsley stated. “Children are vulnerable to COVID-19 and long-term complications just like everyone else. Staying up to date on vaccines and boosters is the best way to protect against severe illness, hospitalization and death from the virus.”
The new booster is referred to as a “bivalent” vaccine – which means that it targets both the original coronavirus strain and the newer Omicron BA.4 and BA.5 variants.
As of mid-September, these variants constituted about 80 percent of COVID-19 cases in North Carolina. According to state health officials, everyone 5 years of age and older should get the updated COVID-19 booster two months after they finish their primary series or any booster dose.
Health officials say that it’s safe to get the new COVID-19 vaccine at the same time you get your annual flu vaccine.
The new COVID-19 vaccines, like the previous ones, are free to everyone, regardless of insurance or immigration status.

Thuu it a shot has only been tested on mice. All the mice contracted Covid when exposed. Stop lining up for these clot shots.
As the late G. Gordon Kiddy would say “O you sucker you!”
No they are not “widely available”. Even their own healthyguilford.com shows no appointments for October. There isn’t even an October calendar! I’ve been trying to get the 5th booster for weeks to no avail.
Hundreds of thousands have suffered severe reactions to these vaccines, and many have died. I personally know two people who have died from the stick.
My wife and I had four covid prickes, and an flu shot; we still got Covid this April. So not only does a covid jab not guarantee your protection; but also neither a jab nor a mask will prevent your spreading the virus. No more of this c^(p for me.
Our govt lies to us. A lot. They want us in their pocket.
Never got the 1st never going to. If you have not realized by the 5th round you have been hoodwinked you never will. 5/6 people agree Russian rulet is safe 🙂
God, please protect the children. When more children have died from the vaccine ( per the VAERS) than from covid, I can only ascribe this demonic push to jab our children as demonic!
I have no sympathy for the adults that were stupid enough to blindly accept the propaganda about Covid 19 and the subsequent shots that have been proven to be harmful and destructive of your immune system with no prevention qualities but actually enable enhancement to being infected. This nonsense about giving those shots to children is criminal. There are credible research sources, excluding anything the CDC or FDA put out, which I would implore you to find before subjecting your children to such potential harm. I am actually surprised The Rhino Times is willfully supporting that “government line” BS, sad to see.
For those interested, search out Robert Malone, MD but do it on BING since Google has suppressed any of his analysis. He was one of the pioneers of developing MRNA vaccines and has had the position since 2020 they are ineffective and dangerous as it has been rolled out and touted. Good luck
I am not surprised there are still people as ignorant and hateful as yourself given that there has been no mass illness, no chronic wave of negative side effects, or correlated harm whatsoever from over a billion vaccine shots given. Living in an echo chamber where you only hear what you want to believe is a choice of fools.
Best of luck with that strategy.
Maybe you still have an uninformed family member that is still buying the mainstream media cover-up of the mountains of evidence from every angle clearly showing that the mRNA Covid vaccines were a deadly failure.
Global data shows at least 20 million people have died and 2 billion have been injured due to the plandemic’s clot shot.
Perhaps there is still hope for those who have taken the shots and the boosters, but the madness must end now and the 21st Century Nuremberg Trials must begin!
“Roll Up, Roll Up, Roll Up…
Line up like lemmings for future stroke, heart attack, auto-immune diseases, cancers, and SADS (Sudden Adult Death Syndrome).
And it’s all free!
Roll up, Roll up, Roll up!”
Well known bodybuilder and fitness author Doug Brignole has died suddenly. He was in peak fitness, and training for the Mr Universe contest in Las Vegas later this month. He was well known for being contemptuous of “anti-vaxxers” and famously declared, after submitting to the “vaccines”, “People can use me as a test. If I die, you were right!”
His comment was made derisively, as an insult to those of us who were skeptical of the mRNA clot shots.
The test results are in, Mr Brignole.
