Dear Patients, Residents and Families
Bivalent COVID Booster Shots
Good news! The FDA has approved the new Pfizer and Moderna Bivalent COVID Vaccines as a single booster dose. The new U.S. boosters are combination, or “bivalent,” shots. They contain half the original vaccine recipe and half protection against the newest omicron versions, called BA.4 and BA.5, that are considered the most contagious yet. The combination aims to increase cross-protection against multiple variants.
