Staying Up to Date with COVID-19 Boosters
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends everyone stay up to date with COVID-19 vaccination, including all boosters recommended for their age group. Here are the current recommendations for the updated booster:
- Children ages 6 months - 5 years old should receive all primary series doses, as outlined above.
- Children ages 5 - 11 years old should receive the primary series. The only authorized mRNA booster for this age group is the monovalent booster, to be administered five months after the second dose of the primary series.
- For children ages 12 to 17 years old, the only authorized mRNA booster is the Pfizer bivalent booster which can be administered two months after receiving the primary series of any COVID-19 vaccine or booster.
- Anyone 18 or older who received their primary vaccine series or booster at least two months ago is now eligible for the Pfizer or Moderna bivalent booster.
- Anyone who is immunocompromised may be eligible for a bivalent booster. Use the CDC's COVID-19 booster tool to understand if you're up to date with your COVID-19 vaccinations.
- Those eligible for booster shots may receive either Moderna or Pfizer vaccines; it doesn't matter which vaccine someone received for their primary series.
