What is the recommendation for boosters?


People ages 5 years and older are recommended to receive 1 bivalent mRNA booster dose after completion of any FDA-approved or FDA-authorized monovalent primary series or previously received monovalent booster dose(s). This new booster recommendation replaces all prior booster recommendations for this age group. 

  • People age 5 and older are now recommended to get an updated bivalent booster dose at least 2 months after their last COVID-19 shot. That means the bivalent booster may be given after a person’s primary series or after their last booster shot.
  • The updated Pfizer booster is authorized for people age 5 and older. The updated Moderna booster is authorized for people age 6 and older.
  • Everyone who is eligible—including those who are moderately or severely immunocompromised—are recommended to receive 1 dose of the updated vaccine.
  • The updated bivalent booster helps protect against the original COVID-19 strain that has been in the vaccines as well as against newer Omicron variants that are circulating.
