The updated booster vaccines specifically protect against current variants often called “Omicron boosters.”
“Like the flu shot, this booster teaches your body to protect you from the virus strains circulating right now,” said Dr. Penny Borenstein, County Health Officer in a press release. “This added protection will help families stay healthy as we look ahead to holiday gatherings and seek to avoid a winter surge.”

Two updated booster options will be available for ages five to eleven: a Moderna booster for ages 6 and older, and a Pfizer booster for ages 5 and older. Like adults, children may get an updated booster two months after completing the primary series, or two months after receiving a previous booster dose. This updated booster replaces the original booster dose.
