Omicron Boosters Available for Kids 5 Years and Older

Great news! The omicron booster vaccine is now authorized for kids age 5 and older.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention approved the use of Pfizer’s omicron dose for people aged 5 years and older, and Moderna’s omicron dose for people aged 6 years and older. Children 5 years and older are recommended to receive one omicron dose at least two months after their most recent dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. Children in this age group can start getting the omicron vaccine immediately, although there will be more availability in the coming days and weeks. Talk to your health care provider and local pharmacy for current availability; will be updated as more clinics become available.
