Vaccine Updates

October 2022 - Moderna and Pfizer Bivalent COVID-19 Vaccines available.

September 6, 2022 - Pfizer Bivalent COVID-19 vaccines available for 12 years of age and older as a single booster dose at least 2 months after completion of your primary vaccination with any authorized or approved monovalent COVID-19 vaccine or receipt of most recent booster dose with any authorized or approved monovalent vaccine.

July 20, 2022 - CDC recommends COVID-19 primary series vaccines for everyone ages 6 months and older, and COVID-19 boosters for everyone ages 5 years and older, if eligible.

On June 18, 2022, CDC Director Rochelle P. Walensky, M.D., M.P.H., endorsed the CDC Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices’ (ACIP) recommendation to expand COVID-19 vaccination to children younger than 5 years of age. This decision now universally recommends COVID-19 vaccination for everyone 6 months and older, paving the way for nearly 20 million children in this age group to get vaccinated and allowing providers to begin vaccinating with either the Moderna or the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine as soon as possible.  

Parents with questions are encouraged to talk to their child’s healthcare provider, school nurse, or local pharmacist to learn more about the COVID-19 vaccine and the importance of keeping children up to date with all recommended vaccinations.
