Following the Food and Drug Administration’s action on April 19th, 2023, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has approved simplification of COVID-19 vaccine recommendations and allows more flexibility for people at higher risk who want the option to receive an additional COVID-19 vaccine dose.

The following are the changes to the recommendations:

  • Monovalent (original) COVID-19 mRNA vaccines (Pfizer and Moderna) are no longer recommended for use in the U.S. 
  • The CDC now recommends that everyone ages 6 years and older receive a bivalent mRNA COVID-19 vaccine, regardless of whether they previously completed their (monovalent) primary series. 
    • Individuals ages 6 years and older who have already received a bivalent mRNA vaccine do not need to take any additional shot at this time, unless they are 65 years and older or immunocompromised. 
      • Individuals >65 years who have received a single dose of a bivalent vaccine may receive one additional dose at least four months following their initial bivalent dose.
      • Individuals > 6 years who are immunocompromises and have received a bivalent COVID-19 vaccine may receive an additional dose of a bivalent COVID-19 vaccine at least 2 months following a dose of a bivalent COVID-19 vaccine, and additional doses may be administered at the discretion of their health care provider.
    • For children 6 months through 5 years of age, multiple doses continue to be recommended and will vary by age, vaccine, and which vaccines were previously received. Please refer to the CDC Interim Clinical Considerations for detailed guidance. 

All COVID-19 vaccine types are now available at Garland's Public Health Clinic, 206 Carver Drive, Garland TX 75040.
