Need a COVID vaccine booster? Here's a list of walk-in booster clinics in Maine

NEWS CENTER Maine will update this story as more clinics open across the state.

MAINE, USA — The U.S. is urging that everyone 12 and older get a COVID-19 booster as soon as they're eligible to help fight the omicron variant. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention endorsed an extra Pfizer shot for younger teens — those 12 to 15 — and strengthened its recommendation that 16- and 17-year-olds get it, too.
