On April 19, 2023 the CDC updated its COVID-19 vaccine recommendations to simplify guidance and allow people at higher risk for severe COVID-19 to get an additional vaccine dose. The CDC’s updated guidance followed FDA’s regulatory action the day prior, which authorized the additional vaccine doses for older adults and immunocompromised people.

 If you are 65 or older or immunocompromised, you can now get an additional updated (bivalent Pfizer/Moderna) vaccine dose at least four months after your initial bivalent dose. If you’re in this group and have questions about getting an additional COVID-19 vaccine dose, you should consult your healthcare provider.  

  • What has changed:
    1. Adults age 65 and older and immunocompromised people can get an additional COVID-19 vaccine dose, at least four months after their initial updated (bivalent) vaccine dose.
    2. Monovalent (original) COVID-19 mRNA vaccines will no longer be recommended for use in the U.S.
  • What has not changed:
    1. CDC continues to recommend that everyone ages 6 years and older receive an updated (bivalent) mRNA COVID-19 vaccine. Individuals ages 6 years and older who have already received an updated mRNA vaccine do not need to take any action unless they are 65 years or older or immunocompromised.
    2. For young children, multiple doses continue to be recommended and will vary by age, vaccine, and which vaccines were previously received.
