Based on CDC recommendations, Howard Brown Health offers updated or bivalent Pfizer boosters for people 12 years and older if it has been at least 2 months since their last COVID-19 vaccine dose, whether that was:
- Their final primary series dose (whether Pfizer of Moderna), or
- An original (monovalent) booster (whether Pfizer of Moderna)
People who have gotten more than one original (monovalent) booster are also recommended to get an updated (bivalent) booster. The updated (bivalent) boosters are called “bivalent” because they protect against both the original virus that causes COVID-19 and the Omicron variant BA.4 and BA.5.
Please call us at 773.388.1600 to schedule your booster shot.
For more detailed information about bivalent boosters, please see cdc.gov
