With holiday gatherings just around the corner, it’s important to protect yourself and your loved ones by getting a flu shot and an updated COVID-19 booster. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has authorized the updated COVID-19 booster vaccine for children 5 and up. Also, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends an updated booster vaccine at least 2 months after the 2‑dose primary series or previous booster for:
- Pfizer: People 5 and older
- Moderna: People 6 and older
There are currently no authorized boosters for children younger than 5.
To learn how to get the updated booster, visit kp.org/covidvaccine. You can also call the Kaiser Permanente COVID InfoLine at 877-808-9233 (TTY 711) (available in English and Spanish) 24/7 for regular recorded updates.
