      The Update on “Up to Date”

      Since CDC recommended the updated (bivalent) COVID-19 boosters earlier this month, 7.6 million eligible people in the United States have gotten one. Bivalent boosters help restore protection that might have gone down since your last dose—and they also give extra protection for you and those around you against all lineages of the Omicron variant. Both Moderna and Pfizer offer bivalent boosters.

      The introduction of the new boosters has caused some changes in vaccine recommendations, which are based on your age, the vaccine you first received, and time since your last dose. You are up to date with your COVID-19 vaccines if you have completed a COVID-19 vaccine primary series and received the most recent booster dose recommended for you by CDC. Here’s the breakdown:

      - People ages 6 months through 4 years should get all COVID-19 primary series doses.

      - People ages 5 years and older should get all primary series doses, and the booster dose recommended for them by CDC.

      - People ages 5 to 11 years are currently recommended to get the original (monovalent) booster.

      - People ages 12 years and older are recommended to receive the updated Pfizer or Moderna bivalent booster.

      - This includes people who have received all primary series doses and people who have previously received one or more original boosters.

      - At this time, people ages 12 to 17 years can only receive the updated Pfizer bivalent booster.

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

      The more people who stay up to date on their vaccinations, the better chance we have of avoiding a possible surge in COVID-19 illness later this fall and winter. Use this tool to determine when or if you (or your child) can get one or more COVID-19 boosters.
