The updated COVID-19 vaccine can help lower the risk of severe illness, hospitalization, or death from the coronavirus.
Vaccine recommendations by age
For those age 18 or older, the updated COVID-19 vaccine provides the protection needed for the current variants of the virus. For infants, children, and teens, doses vary depending on age, prior vaccinations, and the maker of the vaccine administered. Infants and children of certain ages may be required to get the updated COVID-19 vaccine from a state clinic rather than their pediatrician.
