COVID-19 Booster Vaccinations Now Available

COVID-19 booster vaccinations are now available for individuals 5 years and older who meet the guidelines established by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Persons who completed their primary COVID-19 vaccine series or received their last monovalent COVID-19 booster at least two months ago are eligible. Monovalent (original) COVID-19 vaccine is still available for persons who have not yet completed their primary series, and for children 6 months to 4 years of age.

Norton Healthcare currently offers the Pfizer booster at Norton Prompt Care at Walgreens clinics, Norton Community Medical Associates offices and Norton Children’s Medical Group locations.

The updated bivalent COVID-19 boosters provide greater protection against the BA.4/BA.5 omicron subvariants. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) authorized the Moderna and Pfizer bivalent COVID-19 boosters on Aug. 31, 2022, for ages 12 and older; and on Oct. 12, 2022, the Pfizer booster for ages 5 through 11 and the Moderna booster for ages 6 to 11. Norton Healthcare will be receiving doses of the bivalent Pfizer booster vaccine for ages 5 to 11. If your child ages 5 to 11 has an appointment scheduled for a booster vaccination, you will be contacted to reschedule once we receive the new vaccine.

It is OK receive either brand of the new booster, regardless of which brand of vaccine you previously received (as long as the dose is appropriate for the patient’s age).

Please speak with your health care provider about whether getting an additional dose is appropriate for you.
