Where to Get a COVID-19 Vaccine

The FDA authorized and the CDC approved in September 2022 updated (bivalent) versions of the Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines. The updated vaccines offer protection from the original COVID-19 virus and the omicron variant that is currently circulating. The bivalent Moderna COVID-19 vaccine is authorized for administration at least 2 months following completion of primary or booster vaccination for anyone aged 6 years and older. The bivalent Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine is authorized for administration at least 2 months following completion of primary or booster vaccination anyone aged 5 years and older. Learn more about the updated omicron doses from CDPHE.

Standard COVID-19 Vaccine Dosing Schedules

COVID-19 vaccine recommendations are based on your age, the vaccine you first received, and the time since your last dose. Children get a smaller dose of COVID-19 vaccine than teens and adults based on their age group. Updated COVID-19 boosters can both help restore protection that has decreased since previous vaccination, and provide broader protection against newer variants. The updated, or bivalent boosters, target the most recent Omicron subvariants, BA.4 and BA.5, that are more contagious and more resistant than earlier strains of Omicron.
