On September 1, 2022 and subsequently on October 12, 2022, CDC provided updated recommendations for COVID-19 boosters. It is important for everyone eligible to be up to date on your COVID-19 vaccinations by receiving an updated booster dose at least two months after your last COVID-19 vaccination. This can include two months after completing your primary series or two months after your last booster shot.
The updated Pfizer-BioNTech booster is recommended for individuals 5 and older, and Moderna’s booster is recommended for individuals 6 and older.
Anyone eligible can get either updated booster regardless of the manufacturer (Pfizer, Novavax, Moderna or Janssen) of your most recent dose.
The updated COVID-19 boosters are bivalent. This means that they:
- Boost immunity against the original coronavirus strain and
- Provide protection against the newer Omicron variants that have been circulating and account for most COVID-19 cases.
They are intended to provide better protection against COVID-19. This new updated booster replaces the existing monovalent vaccine booster for individuals 5+.
