Late last week, the CDC announced that teens age 16 and 17, who had their second COVID vaccine at least six months ago, should receive a booster dose.
Only the Pfizer vaccine may be given as the booster dose for the 16-17 age group at this time. Patients 18 and older may receive either a Pfizer or Moderna booster per the CDC.
Getting the booster is currently the best way to reduce the spread of the new variant, Omicron.
Booster vaccines (and dose 1 and 2 vaccines) are available at our Downers Grove clinic. Schedule online or simply walk-in for an appointment.
