Booster FAQs

  • The new bivalent boosters are here! What is a bivalent booster?
    Until now, the COVID-19 vaccines have targeted the original strain. The variants of COVID-19 have made this vaccine a little less effective over time. This new bivalent booster protects against the original strain and the new Omicron variant (BA.4/BA.5 variants)
  • Who is eligible to receive the new bivalent COVID-19 booster?

Bivalent booster dose: People ages 12 years and older who received a primary series with any COVID-19 vaccine, including people who previously received a monovalent booster dose(s), are recommended to receive 1 bivalent booster dose; any age-appropriate bivalent booster dose (Moderna or Pfizer-BioNTech) can be used.

Monovalent booster dose: People ages 5−11 years who received a Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine primary series are recommended to receive 1 age-appropriate monovalent Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine booster dose.

No booster dose: People ages 6−11 years who received Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine primary series and people ages 4 years and younger are not currently eligible for any booster dose.
