Are You Up to Date on the Latest Boosters for COVID-19?
Who can get a booster?
The protection you get from a COVID-19 vaccine declines over time. To stay protected, you need an additional dose called a booster. The FDA recently approved boosters specifically targeting the omicron variant, which has been the dominant strain since last winter. The new Pfizer booster is recommended for those 6 months and older. The new Moderna booster is recommended for those 6 years of age or older.
Individuals ages 18 and older are eligible for the new, Moderna bivalent booster, and individuals ages 12 and older are eligible for the new, Pfizer bivalent booster, at OLE Health if:
- It has been two months or longer since your second dose of a two-dose vaccine (Pfizer or Moderna) or single dose J&J vaccine
- It has been two months or longer since you received a Pfizer or Moderna monovalent booster
If you have questions about getting a booster, talk to your primary care provider.
Boosters Available at OLE Health
OLE Health is currently offering the Moderna and Pfizer bivalent booster at our vaccine clinics on by appointment only. For children 5-11, the Pfizer monovalent booster is also available. You can find other locations and appointments for booster shots by visiting myturn.ca.gov.
Your Vaccine Card
After you get your shot, you will be given a vaccination card. Keep it handy to show when you travel or for certain activities. It’s a good idea to take a picture of it with your phone. Bring your card with you when you come in for your second shot or a booster so the information will be added to your vaccine card.
