COVID-19 Vaccine



The COVID-19 vaccine is available to people 6 months of age and older.

December 9, 2022 – The Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) updated booster dose recommendations are as follows:

  • Children 6 months-5 years who received the original monovalent Moderna COVID-19 vaccine are now eligible to receive an updated bivalent booster two months after completing the primary series.
  • The Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine for children 6 months-4 years will now include two monovalent Pfizer doses and one bivalent Pfizer dose.
    • Children 6 months-4 years who have not yet begun the 3-dose Pfizer primary series or who have not received the third dose of their primary series will now receive the updated Pfizer series
    • Children 6 months-4 years who have already completed the 3-dose Pfizer primary series will not be eligible for additional doses or boosters at this time
  • Novavax monovalent COVID-19 boosters are also available for adults if they have completed primary series vaccination but have not previously received a COVID-19 booster — and if they cannot or will not receive an updated mRNA booster.
