Who Can Get the New COVID-19 Boosters?

Updated October 20, 2022

Cold weather is here, and so are updated COVID-19 boosters! Like your annual flu shot, boosters keep your immune system ready to fight all season long.

Our clinic is now offering updated Pfizer and Moderna boosters that target omicron variants — which make up almost all new cases in the US.

Not sure if you’re eligible? Here’s what you need to know before making your appointment.

The CDC recommends an updated COVID-19 booster for everyone ages 5+

When you become eligible and what type of booster you can get depends on your age:

  • Everyone ages 6+ can get an updated Moderna or Pfizer booster (2 months after their last dose).
  • Children age 5 can receive an updated Pfizer booster (2 months after their last dose).
  • Children younger than age 5 are not currently eligible for a booster.

If you’re immunocompromised, you may need an additional primary shot first.

After completing the primary series, moderately or severely immunocompromised people should get an additional primary shot after their second dose. If you are eligible for an additional primary shot, you should get this dose first before you get a booster shot. Click here to learn more.

If you would like to receive your booster or additional dose, you can make an appointment at our Independence clinic. Schedule yours today!
