Indications for Receiving the "New" Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 Bivalent Booster Vaccine           

A single booster dose of the "New" Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 Bivalent Vaccine may be administered at least 2 months after either:  #1) The completion of your Primary Vaccination Series or  #2) After receiving your most recent booster shot you had using any of the "original" authorized/approved COVID-19 Monovalent Vaccines.     >Pfizer Bivalent Booster is available to those 12 years and older       >Moderna Bivalent Booster is available to those 18 years and older                                                                                                                                        The original COVID-19 Vaccine Primary Series consists of a two-shot sequence using one of the authorized/approved Monovalent COVID-19 Vaccines.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      Those who recently had a COVID-19 infection or a SARS-CoV-2 infection (within the last 3 months) may consider delaying their next booster dose by 3 months from the onset of symptoms or a positive test for COVID-19 if the infection was asymptomatic.                                                                                                                                                                      The Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 Bivalent Booster Vaccine is currently indicated as a booster regardless of what Primary Series Vaccine was received. For example: If an individual's Primary COVID-19 Vaccination Series was completed using the Johnson & Johnson or Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine, one can be vaccinated with the new Pfizer COVID-19 Bivalent Booster Vaccine.                            >The Pfizer & Moderna Bivalent Vaccines are interchangeable to use.                                                                                                                                        The CDC does authorize both the Pfizer and Moderna Bivalent Booster Vaccines and the Flu Vaccine (influenza) 2022-2023 to be given together at the same time.                                                                                                                                                                                                              Please see the CDC website to review the most recent updated indications, guidelines, and information about COVID-19 Vaccines:    https://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/covid-19/clinical-considerations/interim-considerations-us.html#recommendations
