A few things to consider:
- The CDC recommends the new bivalent booster for anyone who has not had a booster within the last 2 months.
- The new bivalent booster became available on Labor Day weekend.
- Please remember to bring your vaccine card so we can update it.
- The booster we have this time is Pfizer and the CDC says it is acceptable to mix and match.
- Getting a COVID-19 vaccine after you recover from COVID-19 infection provides added protection against COVID-19.
- However, if you recently had COVID-19, you may consider delaying your next vaccine dose (primary dose or booster) by 3 months from when your symptoms started or, if you had no symptoms, when you first received a positive test.
- This link for the CDC gives you not only all the information you need concerning the booster but provides a Booster Tool that lets you know if you are eligible for the new booster. Stay Up to Date with COVID-19 Vaccines Including Boosters | CDC
