COVID-19 vaccines can help protect against severe illness, hospitalization and death from COVID-19. As the virus changes and as our immunity naturally decreases over time, we may lose protection from previous vaccines. The FDA has authorized the bivalent formulations of the Moderna and Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccines for use as a single booster dose at least two months after completing primary or booster vaccination.
The Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine, Bivalent is authorized for use as single booster dose in individuals 18 years of age and older. The Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine, Bivalent is authorized for use as a single booster dose in individuals 12 years of age and older.
The bivalent vaccines are also available at most local pharmacies including CVS, Walgreens and Publix. To find a nearby location use the CDC’s vaccination search page.
