[ARCHIVED] COVID-19 Vaccine Guidance Update

covid update

On April 18, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) updated the guidance and emergency use authorizations for COVID-19 vaccines to simplify the vaccination schedule for most individuals.  A summary of the changes is provided below:

  • Effective April 18, the monovalent (original) Moderna and Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccines are no longer authorized. The current bivalent vaccines are authorized to be used for all doses for individuals 6 months of age and older.
  • Individuals 6 months and older who have completed their primary monovalent series but have not yet received a bivalent vaccine should schedule an appointment to receive a bivalent vaccine to be up to date.  Schedule an appointment online or call 847-933-8252.
  • Individuals ages 6 months old to 64 years old who are not immunocompromised and have completed their monovalent primary series and received one dose of the bivalent vaccine are considered up to date and do not need another bivalent vaccine at this time.
  • Individuals 65 years of age and older who have received a single dose of a bivalent vaccine may receive one additional dose four months following their initial bivalent dose.
  • Individuals who are immunocompromised ages 6 months old to 64 years old who have completed their monovalent primary series and received one dose of the bivalent vaccine may receive an additional dose of bivalent vaccine two months following their initial bivalent dose.  Please see the list of immunocompromised conditions that make you eligible for a second bivalent dose.

Skokie Health and Human Services has Moderna Bivalent COVID-19 vaccines for individuals ages 6 months and older. Visit our COVID-19 Vaccine website for more information and to schedule an appointment.
