COVID-19 Vaccine and Boosters
COVID 19 vaccines are recommended for everyone 6 months and older. The COVID-19 vaccine has been shown to be safe, effective, and protective against serious illness. The new CDC-approved COVID-19 “bivalent” booster vaccines from Moderna and Pfizer are updated versions of the original vaccines. Anyone age 5 or older who completed a primary COVID-19 vaccination series or received a booster dose at least two months ago should get the updated booster as soon as possible.
Your booster does not need to be the same vaccine brand as your original COVID-19 vaccination, but does need to be age appropriate (currently Pfizer for ages 5 and older, and Moderna for ages 6 and older).
Everyone 6 months and older should get an annual flu vaccine, ideally by the end of October. The flu vaccine can keep you from getting sick or reduce the severity of illness if you do get the flu. You can get a COVID-19 vaccine or booster and a flu vaccine at the same time.
