CDC Recommends the First Updated COVID-19 Booster
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices recommends administration of updated COVID-19 boosters from Pfizer-BioNTech for people ages 12 years and older and from Moderna for people ages 18 years and older. Updated COVID-19 boosters add Omicron BA.4 and BA.5 spike protein components to the current vaccine composition, helping to restore protection that has waned since previous vaccination by targeting variants that are more transmissible and immune-evading.
