Stay current with Covid vaccines and booster shots

Stay protected against COVID-19 by being up to date with your primary series vaccines and boosters.

From the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC):

  • Updated (bivalent) boosters became available September 2, 2022.
  • CDC recommends everyone stay up to date with COVID-19 vaccines for their age group:
  • Getting a COVID-19 vaccine after you recover from COVID-19 infection provides added protection against COVID-19.
  • If you recently had COVID-19, you may consider delaying your next vaccine dose (primary dose or booster) by 3 months from when your symptoms started or, if you had no symptoms, when you first received a positive test.
  • People who are moderately or severely immunocompromised have different recommendations for COVID-19 vaccines.
  • COVID-19 vaccine and booster recommendations may be updated as CDC continues to monitor the latest COVID-19 data.

For additional recommendations and to see if you’re up to date, visit the CDC website.

Get your flu shot as early as possible

Signs point to a bad flu season ahead. Getting vaccinated is a safe and effective way to avoid getting sick. Schedule your shot today!

The CDC recommends that anyone six months of age and older get vaccinated, particularly people who are at a high risk for flu complications, young children and people with chronic conditions.

The 2023-2024 flu season is expected to be much more severe than in past years. In early November, government health officials warned of an early and severe start to cold and flu season in the United States. Dr. Jose Romero, director of the US CDC Immunization and Respiratory Diseases, told reporters “We’re seeing the highest influenza hospitalization rates going back a decade.”

Protect yourself and your family by getting your flu shots as soon as possible.

Is it safe to get the flu vaccine at the same time as a COVID-19 vaccine or booster?

Yes, the CDC and other public health officials say that it is safe to get the flu shot and the new bivalent COVID booster at the same time.

People who opt for two vaccines at once might experience more side effects, which are similar for both shots: tenderness at the injection site, headaches, fatigue. A small number of people may develop a fever. So, if you’ve had a bad reaction to either the flu shot or COVID-19 vaccine, you may want to speak with a physician about spacing these out separately.
