Who should get an updated booster?
The updated Pfizer and Moderna boosters, also called “bivalent” boosters, target the Omicron variants as well as the original strain of the COVID-19 virus. So even if you have had a booster in the past, the updated one is tailored for the variants circulating now. Getting the updated booster is the single most important way to avoid serious COVID-19 infections and long COVID.
Updated boosters use the same ingredients as other COVID-19 vaccines, with a change to one of the proteins to target Omicron variants.
You should get the updated booster if:
- You have completed your primary series of vaccines (the first two doses of Moderna/Pfizer/Novavax or one dose of Johnson & Johnson), and
- It has been at least two months since your last dose. Your last dose could have been a primary dose or a booster dose.
You do not need to get the same brand as your primary series or last booster.
