  • People ages 5 years and older should get all primary series doses, and the booster dose recommended for them by CDC, if eligible.
    • People ages 5 years to 11 years are currently recommended to get the original (monovalent) booster.
    • People ages 12 years and older are recommended to receive one updated Pfizer or Moderna (bivalent) booster.
      • This includes people who have received all primary series doses and people who have previously received one or more original (monovalent) boosters.
      • At this time, people aged 12 years to 17 years can only receive the updated Pfizer bivalent booster.
  • Getting a COVID-19 vaccine after you recover from COVID-19 infection provides added protection against COVID-19.
