Frequently asked questions

Who is eligible for the vaccine?
Everyone 6 months of age and older is now eligible to get a COVID-19 vaccination.

Who is eligible for the booster shot?
The CDC recommends that people ages 12 years and older receive one updated (bivalent) booster if it has been at least 2 months since their last COVID-19 vaccine dose, whether that was:

  • Their final primary series dose, or
  • An original (monovalent) booster

People who have had more than one original (monovalent) booster are also recommended to get an updated (bivalent) booster.

What are the updated (bivalent) boosters?
The updated (bivalent) boosters are called "bivalent" because they protect against both the original virus that causes COVID-19 and the Omicron variants BA.4 and BA.5.

Previous boosters are called "monovalent" because they were designed to protect against the original virus that causes COVID-19. They also provide some protection against Omicron, but not as much as the updated (bivalent) boosters.

The virus that causes COVID-19 has changed over time. The different versions of the virus that have developed over time are called variants. Learn more about variants of the COVID-19 virus. Two COVID-19 vaccine manufacturers, Pfizer and Moderna, have developed updated (bivalent) COVID-19 boosters.

When are you considered up-to-date on your vaccines?
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 the CDC.

COVID-19 vaccine recommendations are based on three things:

  1. Your age
  2. The vaccine you first received
  3. The length of time since your last dose

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

You are still up to date if you receive all COVID-19 vaccine doses recommended for you and then become ill with COVID-19. You do not need to be immediately revaccinated or receive an additional booster.

How can I schedule an appointment to get the vaccine?
Use the store locator to contact your local pharmacy for information about how to sign up or schedule a vaccine appointment. Processes for scheduling an appointment or joining a vaccine wait list may vary by location. There may be additional details and/or links available on their pharmacy page.
