COVID-19 Booster Shots
What is the updated COVID-19 booster shot?
On September 1, 2022, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) approved and recommended updated COVID-19 booster vaccines from Moderna and Pfizer. The updated boosters are “bivalent,” which means they protect against two strains of the COVID-19 virus. The updated boosters target the original COVID-19 strain and the omicron variant.
Who can get a booster shot?
You are eligible for the updated booster if you completed a primary vaccination series with one of the COVID-19 vaccines and it has been at least two months since the last dose of your primary vaccine series or your last booster dose.
You are eligible for this updated bivalent booster no matter how many previous booster shots you received.
The updated boosters are currently only approved for patients ages 12 and older (Pfizer) and 18 and older (Moderna). Children ages 5-11 should continue to receive the original Pfizer booster shot.
