Recently the FDA authorized and the CDC recommended updated bivalent COVID-19 boosters from Pfizer for ages 12 and up and Moderna for ages 18 and up, which are formulated to provide better protection against the omicron BA.4 and BA.5 variants. The updated booster is recommended for all people ages 12 and up who completed a primary vaccine series, including those who received one or more original boosters, at least 2 months ago. SSA strongly encourages eligible students and employees to schedule an updated booster at their local pharmacy or health care provider. Learn about booster recommendations here and visit vaccines.gov to find a provider.
