Booster Vaccines for COVID-19

Recommendation from the LA County Dept of Public Health: Everyone 5 and older should get one fall updated (bivalent) booster at least 2 months after their last COVID-19 vaccine dose (either the final primary series dose or the last monovalent booster). This is regardless of how many boosters or which type of vaccine(s) they got in the past.

  • People age 6 and older can get either a Pfizer or Moderna fall booster.
  • Children age 5 can only get the Pfizer fall booster.

Note: Children ages 11 and under get a lower dose of the updated booster than teens and adults
