On April 18, 2023, The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) amended the emergency use authorizations (EUAs) of the Moderna and Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 bivalent mRNA vaccines. The FDA deauthorized the monovalent Moderna and Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccines and provided authorization for bivalent vaccines for additional uses. This will simplify the vaccination schedules by authorizing the current bivalent vaccines to be used for all doses administered to individuals 6 months of age and older, including for an additional dose or doses for certain populations.
Stay up-to-date with COVID vaccines
- Adults and children aged 6 years and older are up to date with COVID-19 vaccines if they got a bivalent (updated) COVID-19 vaccine.
- Children 6 months through 5 years of age who received the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine are up to date if:
- They are 6 months to 4 years of age and got at least 3 COVID-19 vaccine doses, including at least one bivalent (updated) COVID-19 vaccine dose.
- They are 5 years of age and got at least 1 bivalent (updated) COVID-19 vaccine dose.
- Children 6 months through 5 years of age who got the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine are up to date if they got at least two Moderna COVID-19 vaccine doses, including at least one bivalent (updated) COVID-19 vaccine dose.
You may be eligible for additional COVID-19 vaccines doses if
- You are 65 years of age and older and got your first bivalent (updated) COVID-19 vaccine booster 4 or more months ago.
- You are moderately or severely immunocompromised and received a bivalent (updated) COVID-19 vaccine booster 2 or more months ago.
- If you are unable or choose not to get a recommended bivalent mRNA vaccine, you will be up to date if you got the Novavax COVID-19 vaccine doses approved for your age group.
If you have tested positive for COVID-19, it is recommended to wait three months to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.
