Stay Up to Date With COVID-19 Vaccines

COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective.  COVID-19 vaccination helps protect adults and children ages 6 months and older from getting severely ill with COVID-19 and helps protect those around them.

CDC recommends everyone stay up to date with COVID-19 vaccines for their age group:

Getting a COVID-19 vaccine after you have recovered from COVID-19 infection provides added protection against COVID-19. 

People who are moderately or severely immunocompromised have different recommendations for COVID-19 vaccines.

    New Updated COVID-19 Bivalent Booster Dose

    The CDC recommends the new updated COVID-19 bivalent booster from Pfizer and Moderna for people ages 6 months and older.    

    The bivalent booster dose is given at least 2 months after completion of the primary series. For people who previously received a monovalent booster dose, the bivalent booster dose is given at least 2 months after the last monovalent booster dose.

    The updated COVID-19 boosters provide broader protection against newer variants. They also help to restore protection that may have decreased since previous vaccination.

    Use CDC’s COVID-19 booster tool to learn if and when you can get boosters to stay up to date with your COVID-19 vaccines.
