Booster Update (10/31/2022):
The updated (bivalent) boosters are called “bivalent” because they protect against both the original virus that causes COVID-19 and the Omicron variant BA.4 and BA.5.
Previous boosters are called “monovalent” because they were designed to protect against the original virus that causes COVID-19. They also provide some protection against Omicron, but not as much as the updated (bivalent) boosters.
The virus that causes COVID-19 has changed over time. The different versions of the virus that have developed over time are called variants. Learn more about variants of the COVID-19 virus.
Two COVID-19 vaccine manufacturers, Pfizer and Moderna, have developed updated (bivalent) COVID-19 boosters.
The timing of your booster dose depends on which vaccine you received for your primary series. For complete details, see the COVID-19 Vaccine Booster Shot Recommendations (CDC).
If you have further questions about whether you should get a COVID-19 booster shot and when, talk to your healthcare provider.
Everyone age 6 and older in Blanco County is eligibile to receive the Bivalent Moderna COVID-19 Booster.
