The bivalent COVID-19 boosters help provide additional protection against Omicron variants. Bivalent boosters are available for children (6 months and older) as well as adults if it has been at least two months since they have completed primary vaccination or since they have received their last booster dose.

DON'T FORGET YOUR BOOSTER!
If you've completed your initial vaccine series, you will be eligible for at least one recommended booster dose. If you're not sure if you need a booster, please talk with your healthcare provider.
- For details on who is eligible for a booster and when you should get your booster, please see the Washington State Department of Health webpage.
Boosters increase protection against COVID-19, as immunity from the initial vaccine series can wane over time. Boosters also expand protection against new variants of the virus. Eligible individuals may choose which vaccine they receive as a booster dose. According to the FDA and CDC, studies found “mixing and matching” boosters is safe and effective. People age 50 and older and certain immunocompromised individuals also are eligible for booster doses.

Children and youth
Children age six months and older may be vaccinated with parent or guardian consent for a vaccine authorized for their age group. An adult parent or legal guardian should plan to accompany anyone under 18 to the vaccination appointment or verify consent requirements in advance with the vaccine provider.
Children receive a smaller dose than older patients. Please contact your child's healthcare provider if you have any questions about the COVID-19 vaccine.

The initial vaccine series or Moderna, Pfizer and Novavax includes two doses. According to CDC guidelines, individuals should receive
- two doses of the Moderna "Spikevax" vaccine with a target timeline of 28 days apart
- two doses of the Pfizer "Comirnaty" vaccine with a target timeline of 21 days apart
- two doses of Novavax vaccine, 3-8 weeks apart
The second dose should be administered as close to the recommended interval as possible. However, if that is not possible, the second dose may be scheduled later. If the second dose is administered beyond these target dates, there is no need to get the first dose again.
You'll receive a vaccination card at the appointment for your first dose. Save the card and take a photo on your phone in case you lose it. This has information on the brand you received for your first dose, and you may be required to show that record when you get your second dose.
