Do I need a booster dose?
The CDC recommends everyone stay up to date with COVID-19 vaccination, including all primary series doses and boosters for their age group. Individuals age 5 and up should receive a booster dose of COVID vaccine.
Monovalent booster doses are no longer authorized for patients aged 12 and older. Those individuals are recommended to receive a a bivalent COVID booster if they have completed their initial COVID series at least 2 months prior OR if they have received a booster dose at least 2 months prior. Patients (aged 5-11 years of age) who received a Pfizer COVID vaccine series may receive a booster dose of the pediatric vaccine at least 5 months since their series was completed.
Per the CDC, you are up to date with your COVID-19 vaccine when you receive all doses in the primary series and all boosters recommended for you, when eligible.
Which booster dose is right for me?
Currently, if you are 12+, only bivalent COVID booster vaccinations are approved. Regardless which type of vaccine you received for your initial COVID-19 vaccination series, if you are ages 18+, you may ‘mix and match’ either Pfizer or Moderna vaccines as a booster dose; if you are aged 12-18, you may receive Pfizer bivalent COVID vaccine as a booster dose. Ask your local Lewis Drug pharmacist for details regarding each manufacturer.
