On September 11, the FDA approved and authorized for emergency use updated Moderna and Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccines formulated to more closely target currently circulating variants and provide better protection against serious consequences of COVID-19, including hospitalization and death. These vaccines have been updated to include a monovalent (single) component that corresponds to the Omicron variant XBB.1.5.

“Vaccination remains critical to public health and continued protection against serious consequences of COVID-19, including hospitalization and death,” said Peter Marks, M.D., Ph.D., director of the FDA’s Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research. “The public can be assured that these updated vaccines have met the agency’s rigorous scientific standards for safety, effectiveness, and manufacturing quality. We very much encourage those who are eligible to consider getting vaccinated.” (Source

The CDC recommends everyone 6 months and older get an updated COVID-19 vaccine.

Individuals are NOT considered UP-TO-DATE if they have NOT received the new COVID19 Booster!

If you have any questions about vaccines in general or your vaccine status, please reach out to our Infection Preventionist Nurse, Stephanie Eicher, LPN at ext 148.
