COVID-19 Vaccinations

Get Vaccinated and Stay Up to Date with Boosters

The CDC recommends that people ages 5 years and older receive one updated (bivalent) booster if it has been at least 2 months since their last COVID-19 vaccine dose, whether that was:

  • Their final primary series dose, or
  • An original (monovalent) booster

People who have gotten more than one original (monovalent) booster are also recommended to get an updated (bivalent) booster

CDC recommends everyone stay up to date with COVID-19 vaccines for their age group:

Getting a COVID-19 vaccine after you recover from COVID-19 infection provides added protection against COVID-19.

People who are moderately or severely immunocompromised have different recommendations for COVID-19 vaccines, including boosters.

COVID-19 vaccine and booster recommendations may be updated as CDC continues to monitor the latest data.

Use CDC’s COVID-19 booster tool to learn if and when your child or teen can get boosters to stay up to date with their COVID-19 vaccines. Majol  |  Español
