COVID-19 Vaccination

Last updated: November 1, 2022

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends COVID-19 vaccines for everyone age 6 months and older. COVID-19 boosters are recommended for everyone age 5 years and older. This CDC webpage outlines the COVID-19 vaccination schedule for all ages. Visit the CDC website for more information about the COVID-19 vaccine for children.

Omicron Booster

The CDC now recommends the updated single-dose omicron boosters for everyone who is eligible.

  • The Pfizer-BioNTech booster is recommended for those 5 and older.
  • The Moderna booster is recommended for those 18 and older.
  • Children ages 6 months to 4 years cannot get an omicron booster.

You can get an omicron booster at the same time as your flu shot, if available. If you have had COVID-19 recently, you may consider delaying your booster dose for 3 months.
